Desmos says that \(x=4\) but I'm not sure if it's correctLog in to reply

continuing the procedure we get

\(\sqrt { 1+\sqrt { 4n^{ 3 }+\sqrt { 16n^{ 4 }+\sqrt { 64{ n }^{ 12 }... } } } } \)

for n=1 we have

\(\sqrt { 1+\sqrt { 4+\sqrt { 16+\sqrt { 64... } } } } \)

squaring then subtracting one from each side we have above equation when \(x=4\)

we have the expression =3 when x=4

the other equation is also 3 when x=4

hence proved – Hummus A · 1 year, 6 months ago

We have tried some methods that didn't seem to work, so looking forward to your solution :D – Jason Snow · 1 year, 6 months ago
