Question

# What is the solution to the equation

Hint:

### Rearrange the equation and then solve for .

## The correct answer is: x = 3, - 8

### Complete step by step solution:

Here we have the equation

To make the power of the equation as 1, we have to raise the equation by

On rearranging, we have

Now, this is a quadratic equation with a = 1, b = 5, c = -24

Roots can be found with,

On solving, we get x = 3, - 8
