    alright... this is what i get :P lol uhmm... add x to one, so, x+1 and subtract one from x plus root of one squared, (x+1)+(x+1^2-1) that's equal to a number twice as big as x minus itself, so (x+1)+(x+1^2-1)=2*(x-x) correct?

    nope! LOOOL, look at this line :P and subtract one from x plus root of one squared, (x+1)+(x+1^2-1) where's the root of one squared? it's only one squared, there's no root :P

    \[\sqrt{1^2}=1\]

    The question is kinda confusing. What does it exactly say? What are you doing with \(x + 1\) and \((x + \sqrt{1})^2 - 1\)?

    that makes all the difference in the initial equation. i think it matters though result may be the same, lol

    @ParthKohli the full equation is what i have written down, (x+1)+(x+1^2-1)=2*(x-x) but then this part is supposed to be \(\large (x+ \sqrt{1^2}-1) \) :)

    Is the question this?\[(x + 1) + (x + \sqrt{1})^2 - 1 = 2(x - x)\]If so, you have \((x + 1) + (x + \sqrt{1})^2 - 1 = 0\)

    actually When you frame the equation it should be important \[(x+1)+(x+\sqrt{1}^2-1)=2 * (x-x)\]

    Hmm, but I don't think that it'd be \(\sqrt{1}^2\), but if you insist so...

    Since \(\sqrt{1^2} = \sqrt{1} = \pm 1\) you may have to solve both equations\[(x + 1) +(x - 1)-1 = 0\]\[(x+1) + (x + 1) -1 =0\]

    Because square root is a function having range as positive real numbers

    \[(-1)^2 = 1 \Rightarrow -1 = \sqrt{1}\]\[(1)^2 = 1 \Rightarrow 1 = \sqrt{1}\]\[\therefore \sqrt{1} = \pm 1\]@AravindG The domain is positive real number, not the range

    If you want to neglect one root of \(1\), you may. Just consider \(1\) as the root of 1 if you want to. But seriously, this equation has two possible solutions.
