Is it bad that I immediately tried to solve this equation as soon as I saw it?

And here's the breakdown, because that's how I roll:
x + sqrt(x - 1) = 2x – 7

sqrt(x - 1) = x – 7

x – 1 = (x - 7)2 = x2 – 14x + 49

0 = x2 – 15x + 50

0 = (x – 5)(x – 10)

7 ≠ 3, so x ≠ 5

13 = 13, so x = 10

I did mine a little differently.
X + √(X-1) = 2X - 7  the equation on the card

√(X-1) = X - 7   getting the sqrt by itself

X – 1 ≥ 0    calculating what the x under the sqrt could be

X ≥ 1    done; the x under the sqrt has to be greater than or equal to 1

0 ≥ X – 7    knowing the end result of the sqrt has to be greater than or equal to zero we use this to calculate what x by itself should be

7 ≥ X    done; the score on the card has to be seven or more (but nothing more than 10)

X – 1 = (X - 7) * (X - 1)    multiplying both sides by  removes the sqrt

X = 7 , X ≠ 1    we already know x by itself can't be 1, so it has to be 7

X – 1 = 7    but we still have a minus one on the other side, so…

X = 8    that's better


I haven't done this sort of math in a while, so I'm not sure if I'm right. But I just wanted to show how I got it. I got 8 as my score.

It was too much bother to actually do the algebra, so I just assumed that the answer was probably 10 and confirmed.

I mean, it's probably a rational number between 0 and 10, which immediately narrows it down to 1, 2, 5, or 10.

I would've given that performance a 2x+(sq root of x)=3x-6
(how do I insert that symbol of square root?)
