how to solve an implicit equation
Posted:

Hello, How would I go about solving an implicit equation like..
sqrt(a*x^2+b*x+c)+sqrt(d*x^2+e*x+f)=g
a,b,c,d,e,f,g are real constants and I would like to find x (which is a real quantity too) that solves the equation.
Any help is highly appreciated. I don't think that there is an analytical solution to this problem, but I would prefer a numeric solution anyway.
Cheers, Peter
