how to solve an implicit equation

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
