if x is not an integer, then [x] = (x)-1
(x)=[x]+1
(x) = {[x]+1}2
= [x]2 + 2[x] + 1 = [x]2 + 2x(acc to question)
 
ie 2[x]+1= 2x
ie x-[x] = 0.5
 
so x belongs to {..., -1.5, -0.5, 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, ...}
 
If x is an integer, then [x]=(x), and the eqn is satisfied for x= 0
 
so x belongs to  {..., -1.5, -0.5, 0, 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, ...}
