    \[x+\sqrt{x}=1\] \[\sqrt{x}=1-x\]x^2-3x+1=0 \[x=1-2x+x^2\] \[x^2-3x+1=0\] \[x=\frac{3-\sqrt{5}}{2}\] and \[1=(x+\sqrt{x})^2=x^2+2x\sqrt{x}+x\]so \[x^2+2\sqrt{x}=1-\frac{3-\sqrt{5}}{2}=\frac{2-3+\sqrt{5}}{2}=\frac{-1+\sqrt{5}}{2}\]

    \[\sqrt{x}=1-x\] square both sides get \[x=(1-x)^2=1-2x+x^2\] set equal to zero to solve the quadratic get \[x^2-3x+1=0\] unless i goofed up
