(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]\sqrt{x^{2}-t^{2}}=2t-x[/tex]

If x and t are positive numbers that satisfy the equation above, what is the value of [tex]\frac{x}{t}[/tex]?

2. The attempt at a solution

[tex]x^{2}-t^{2}=4t^{2}-x^{2}[/tex]

[tex]x^{2}+x^{2}=4t^{2}+t^{2}[/tex]

[tex]2x^{2}=5t^{2}[/tex]

I'm unsure of what to do next.
