Ok, so you have the following equation:
Let's rewrite it in the following form:

Now we square both sides of the equation. Note please you have to make sure that both sides are positive (this will be checked later, you'll see).

or

Now we subtract 3x from both sides and get:

or
.
So we conclude that x=2. However we need to ...
