Find all real values of x that satisfy the equation (x^2 - 82)^2 = 25.

Hello Guest!

$$\color{BrickRed}(x^2 - 82)^2 = 25\\ x^2=a\\ (a-82)^2-25=0$$

$$(a-82+5)(a-82-5)=0\\ a_1-82+5=0\\ a_1=77,\ \ \color{blue}x_{1,2}=\pm \sqrt{77}\\ a_2-82-5=0\\ a_2=87,\ \ \color{blue}x_{3,4}=\pm \sqrt{87}$$

$$x\in\{-\sqrt{87},\ -\sqrt{77},\ +\sqrt{77},\ +\sqrt{87}\}$$
