Find all possible real number(s) N that satisfy this equation:

5√(N3 + 2N) = 3√(N5 - 2N)

where, the common value of both sides of the equation is positive.

Oops!  The problem specifies that both sides of the equation must be positive.  In that case, only one of the three values of N that satisfy the equation also satisfy the problem statement.

That's too bad, because the negative solution was my favorite.

By the way, the equation has no imaginary solutions.
