    The number is not necessarily positive, but the definition is the value by which the number is farthest from zero (distance). Eg 1 and -1 both are 1 unit away from zero. That is why it is represented as a positive number. Also, distance can't be represented as a negative number. (e.g. You can't be -5 km away from home.)

    Since √3i does not represent distance, the solution should only be written as x ≤ √5

    "There is actually no such thing as a plus-or-minus square root: it is merely language used to save words. For example, the equation x²=9 has two solutions, which are x=3 and x=-3. It is tedious to say: “since x²=9, x must be 3 or -3″. As a shortcut, we say: “since x²=9, x must be ±3.” http://www.xamuel.com/plus-or-minus-square-roots/
