Let a * b = a + sqrt(b + sqrt(b + sqrt(b + ...))). If 7 * g = 19, find the value of g.  

 

Never mind all that square root stuff.  

Just look at the last sentence:               If 7 * g = 19, find the value of g.  

 

Divide both sides by 7:                                  g = 19/7  =  2.714   

 

Is all that square root stuff a deliberate misdirection? 

Could it be that the problem was copied incorrectly?  

Something else that I'm not getting?
