You need to square both sides to solve for v. Then when you find solutions, check the solutions in the original equation because squaring both sides may introduce extraneous solutions.

$v-2=\sqrt{-2v+39}$ and how we know that all square roots are non-negative, then $v-2\ge0$ $v \ge2$ and the argument of a square root must be non-negative, then $-2v+39\ge0$ $v \le \frac{ 39 }{ 2 }$ now, in the first equation be square both sides $(v-2)^{2}=(\sqrt{-2v+39})^{2}$ $v ^{2} -4v+4=-2v+39$ $v ^{2} -2v-35=0$ factoring $(v+5)(v-7)=0$ so v=-5 or v=7 could be solutions, but at the start we said that v must be greater than 2, so the only solution to this equation is v=7
