    The square root and 2th power exclude each other as they are both doing the opposite. You therefore get: \[4x^2 - 3 = 64\]

    4x^2 = 67 x^2 = 67/4 x = 67/4 , -67/4

    But 64 does not become 8?

    shaun has it right untill he gets rid of power it should be: \[\LARGE x^2=\frac{67}{4}\] then... \[\LARGE x=\pm \sqrt{\frac{67}{4}}\] but first of all... just want to ask you. is this the given: \[\LARGE \sqrt{(4x^2-3)^2}=64 \]

    Actually I don't know whether the square root is for everything or only for (4x^2-3)^2

    I mean if it was for everything then 64 will become 8?

    the whole sqrt is squared? \[(\sqrt{4x^2-3})^2=64\]

    Okay, sorry. I'm a bit confused. I just realised the question does not even have a square root, lol. Sorry!

    \[ (4x^2-3)^2=64 \\ (4x^2-3)=8 \\ 4 x^2 = 11\\ x^2 = \frac {11}4\\ x=\pm \sqrt{\frac {11}4}\\ x =\pm \frac {\sqrt {11}} 2 \]
