A good thing to do first would be to get rid of your square root by sending it to the other side of the equality, then square both sides
Hmm I'm not sure how you would approach this one... http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=x%5E2%2B%285x%29%5E%281%2F2%29-2%3D0 If you go down to where it says "Real Solution:" Click the box that changes it to exact form, you'll see that the answer is crazy -_-
LOL haha. Yeah indeed it appears this one would be tricky as @zepdrix has shown..

Okay I did that and I don't know. That radical is annoying me. Not sure if this is right but I got \[\frac{ -\sqrt{5}\pm \sqrt{13} }{ 2 }\] ?
When you start with irrational coefficients, you should expect that. Only a miracle will clear it out to integers for you.
Ah I got it right! Yay! Thank you everyone.
