x^2  + x  +  11  =  5x  - 8      rearrange as

 

x^2 - 4x +  19  = 0

 

 

x =   4  ±√  [   (-4)^2  - 4 (1) (19) ]

       _______________________

                    2(1)

 

x =    4 ±√  [   16  - 76 ]

       _______________

                    2

 

x =    4 ±√  [   - 60  ]

       ______________

                 2

 

x =    4 ± 2i√15 

       ______________

                 2

 

x =  2 ± i√15
