im really confused and tired can someone help me?Estimate the roots of the equation by graphing. Round to the nearest tenth and write in set form, such as {-1.2,3.4}. x2 - 6= 0

    add 6 to both sides, take the square root.

    Yes, now what are the square roots of 6?

    Note that there is a negative sqrt too.

    An equation of the form x^2 = a, a > 0 has two roots: x = sqrt(b) and x = -sqrt(b) Since you have x^2 = 6, just find the square root of 6. Then one root is the positive square root of 6 and the other root is the negative square root of 6.
