# Solve the equation

Hint:

### Rearrange the equation and then solve for x.

## The correct answer is: x = 7 or -1

**Complete step by step solution:**

Here we have the equation

On squaring both the sides, we have

On subtracting, 3x and 8 from both the sides, we get

On squaring both the sides, we get

Now, this is a quadratic equation with a = 4, b = -24, c = -28

Roots can be found with,

On solving, we get x = 7 or -1
