Hi Andreas, and welcome to MHB. You do not say what you have tried in order to tackle this problem. I suggest that you start by looking at those square roots. Can you simplify them at all?

Thanks for welcome! I need to remove fractions,and get possible solutions for X. I dont know how to remove fractions,step by step would be very useful.

Hello,
My bad did not see this but that is correct! So what is x equal to?

I want to know how do i get solution in math way. I can see that is 1,but how do i prove it? Can i "disassemble" my last expression? Or if you have time,show me please how would you do it! And many thanks,and sorry for my English!

Hello,
$$\displaystyle x^2(x+3)=4$$ and you suspect that $$\displaystyle x=1,2,-2$$ BUT you always check if they are correct and Then you see that $$\displaystyle x=2,-2$$ is a fake root!

$$\displaystyle |\pi\rangle$$
