Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06 x 6= 36 which is 6 squared. 8x6=48 12=36 = 6 squared. Both have equal x values that add up to 36

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But one graph manages to equal zero with 6 squared  36. The other equals 36 which equals the X value used in the other equation. You get two different numbers at the end. 0 for the first, 36 for the second but they both use the same x value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Rubytuesday1 is partially right on the first equation. 6 is one solution, but there is another one. What other number can you multiply by itself to get 36?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You could have negative 6 as well because a negative times a negative is a positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right. :) so the first one would be x = ±6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Forgot to mention the negative factor involved. My bad.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The second one also has two solutions. You need to make one side equal 0 and then either factor or use the quadratic equation to find it. And yes, you're right 6 is one of the solutions
