10-130.

Use a graph to solve $\sqrt{x}=5−x$ . Refer to problem 10-114 if you need a hint to get started.

Graph $y=5-x\text{ and }y=\sqrt{x}$ on the same set of axes.

Where do the curves intersect?
If you were trying to solve the given equation, would you be solving for $x$ or $y$?

$x\approx3.2$
