√x + 2x = 8

√x= 8 - 2x

x = (8 -2x)^2

x = 64 - 32x + 4x ^2

4x^2  - 33x + 64  = 0                     (a=4 , b=  -33,c =64)

by solving

x=( -b +/- √(b^2 - 4ac)) / 2a

numbers are,

x1=33/8√ 65  / 8.....................................

x2=33/8−  √ 65 / 8...........................................

i think the question is square of a number instead of square root of a number

if the question is

the square  ( instead of  square root) of a number increased by twice the number is 8.

then ,

x^2 + 2x = 8

x^2 + 2x - 8 =0

(x + 4)(x -2) = 0

(x + 4)= 0   or   (x -2) = 0

x= -4    or x = 2

numbers are  2, -4.......
