i assume you can solve the quadratic

how did you get √(x ) in 6+ √(x)=x?

@Shaan Ragib – look carefully the value of x

6+ sqrt(6)is repeated to infinity

so is it repeated inside the root

@Abu Zubair – oh! didn't notice it the first time. thank you very much Abu Zubair

Answer is 9 ,4 6+√(6+√(6+....... =x 6+√x =x x-√x-6=0. Solving for x x=9,4

ummm i didn't understand. can you please explain it in words
