    No, this is an approximation, and his is pretty close to what I posted, but in the form of a decimal. (Or atleast it looks logical that it's close. Not doing the math myself.)

    Okay, sorry.

    I'm fucking terrible at math, I'll gladly admit it.

    But will you give me a step by step on how you did it?

    Would love to know.

    You sure yours was correct?
    I've been doing it over and over, and I keep getting

    2 sqrt(x)+4 = 2 sqrt(x)+3
    Did I help you? You know what to do.

    Sounds reasonable since you 'forgot' that you can't root negative numbers.

    Pretty sure there isn't an actual answer to this, I'm only able to simplify it :/
