We are studying linear equations in school and the prof gave us this to solve for extra credit:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

f(x+a) = f(x^2+a)

what is x?

I dunno what type of equation that is, so I can't even start a solution. Can anyone help guide me in the right direction?
