    \[16n^2=4\]\[n^2=\frac{4}{16}=\frac{1}{4}\]\[n=\sqrt{\frac{1}{4}}=\frac{1}{\sqrt{4}}=\pm\frac{1}{2}\]

    nope that means it has two solutions \(1/2\) and \(-1/2\)

    well the first thing you want to do is isolate \(n^2\) so you first have add 4 to both sides, then divide both sides by 16. Now you have \(n^2\) on its own, so you have to take the square root of both sides to do that.

    also I used \[\sqrt\frac{a}{b}=\frac{\sqrt{a}}{\sqrt{b}}\] to take the 1 out and \(\sqrt 4=\pm2\) that is = -2 and =2
