okay, first thing we want to do is square both sides to get rid of the first radicals:$$\sqrt{x+\sqrt{2x}}=\sqrt{2x}\\\left(\sqrt{x+\sqrt{2x}}\right)^2=\left(\sqrt{2x}\right)^2\\x+\sqrt{2x}=2x\\\sqrt{2x}=2xx\\\sqrt{2x}=x$$now we square again:$$\left(\sqrt{2x}\right)^2=x^2\\2x=x^2\\x^22x=0\\x(x2)=0$$

to verify these solutions are not extraneous, plug them back in.
