    Squares and square roots cancel each other out. It is like addition and subtraction. If you start with 5 and add 3 and then subtract 3 you get back to 5 If you start with 5 and multiply by 4 and then divide by 4 you get back to 5 If you start with 36 and sqrt it you get 6 then if you square it you get back to 36 If you start with 5 and square it you get 25 and then you sqrt it you get back to 5

    .. I'm a bit confused.... is the question \[\sqrt{x}+5=3\]? If it's, then... there is no solution...
