Solving for x

  1. Feb 12, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    (2x)0.5 + (4x2 - 2x)0.5 = 2.34x

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    How does one solve this algebraically? If I use a graphing calculator, how can I figure out the x and y intervals (so that I can see the whole graph).

    How would you get rid of the square roots on the LHS of the equation?

    You might also want to consider the domain of the left hand side of this equation.
