same base, just set the powers equal to each other and solve: 2x+3=x^2 solve for x

I am having trouble remembering how to do that. I know that it should be two numbers, but can't remember how to get the answer.

You just need to set the powers up and solve it step by step.

so \[x=\sqrt{2x+3}\]

Starting with 2x+3=x^2 rearrange: subtract 2x+3 from both sides 0= x^2-2x-3 or x^2-2x-3 = 0 This is a quadratic equation. You can solve it by factoring, or using the quadratic formula (Sometimes factoring is easy, especially if you are in practice. But the quadratic formula always works) In this case, where the coefficient of x^2 is 1, focus on the constant term -3 the minus sign means the two factors will have opposite signs. the factors of 3 are 1,3 (nice and simple) now look at the coefficient on the x term: -2x we need two factors that add to get -2 from our list of 1,3 we don't have much of a choice: -3 and +1 = -2 (the other possibility -1+3 = +2 does not match) so the factorization is (x-3)(x+1)=0 (multiply out to check that it is correct) this means either (x-3)= 0 or (x+1)=0 solve each: x-3= 0, x=3 x+1=0 , x= -1

Here's a video on using the quadratic formula http://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra/quadtratics/v/quadratic-formula-1 It is easier to watch than read a boring description.
