    Subtract the square root of x-36 from both sides! now: the square root of x = -the square root of x-36

    \[\sqrt{x} = -\sqrt{x-36}\]

    Square both of them\[(\sqrt{x})^{2} = (-\sqrt{x-36})^{2}\]

    ok...then it is: \[(\sqrt{x})^{2} = (2-\sqrt{x-36})^{2}\]

    Instead of square rooting 32 and the other, first divide -4 from both sides!
