How would one go about solving an equation such as B^{2}X^{2}+2ABCX-ABC^{2}for the value of x that equals zero?

All of the letters are constants except for X, so would this be a quadratic equation problem.?

The solution in the book is somehow

x=(AC/B){[tex]\sqrt{1+(B/A)}[/tex])-1}

that -1 on the end is not the the negative 1 power, but -1
