Arm yourself with the tools to be the king or queen of heady mathematical debates, like the age old question of whether 0.999.... = 1.

What are the solution(s) to the equation \[\sqrt{x+ 4} = x -2?\]

(Partial solution)

The equation can be rewritten as follows:
\[\begin{align}
\sqrt{x+ 4} &= x -2\\
x+ 4 &= (x -2)^2\\
x+ 4 &= x^2 - 4x + 4\\
0 &= x^2 - 5x\\
0 &= x(x - 5).
\end{align}\]
