I need to solve:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\left| 2x-3 \right| = 5 - x^2[/tex]

I started by squaring the equation because modulus functions can only be positive and obtained:

[tex]x^4 -14x^2 +12x +1 = 0[/tex]

I haven't olved any quadnomial equations before, so I don't know where to start. Any help would be much appreciated.
