Rearrange as 

 

sqrt  ( 2x  - 4)  = x - 6      (1)   square both sides

 

2x - 4  =  x^2 - 12x + 36      simplify

 

x^2 - 14x + 40    =  0

 

(x - 10)  (x - 4)    =  0

 

So  possible values of x =   4    or    10

 

  10 is good

    4 is extraneous   .... the left side  of (1) can only be 0 or positive....but 4 makes the right side negative
