    \[(x-4)\sqrt{x-2}\] Is that the way it looks?

    I can't work it, I end up with a 3rd degree polynomial !! Can't figure it out, it looks so simple. I feel sort of foolish about.

    if you're tying to solve for x then this gives an approximate answer (using computer programming) as 5.1304 however, I am more inclined to believe that the question contains a misprint because it is impossible to solve for x exactly.
