Square roots

Can this equation be solved for B when B^2 is a very large number, and both A and B^2 are known, without having to take the square root of B^2 ?

B^2 = A^2 + (B+A)x(B-A) ? Where A is 7, and B^2 is 45,369

Thanks for the help.

B^2= A^2+ (B- A)(B+ A) is the same as B^2- A^2= (B- A)(B+ A) which is an identity- it is true for all A and B. Knowing that A= 7 doesn't help. If B^2= 45369 then B is the square root of 45369. The only way to determine B is to take the square root.
