Im feeling stupid today.

$${\sqrt{3}x = x + {\sqrt{3}}$$

The x is not (square rooted)

Can somebody please throw me in the right direction ??

Integral

Collect your x terms to one side, factor out the x. You should be able to take it from there.

$$\sqrt{3} x - x = \sqrt {3}$$
then take x as a common factor
