Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, that means c^2 = 289 people "get rid of the square" by "taking the square root" of both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and that's your answer

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in other words, we do \[ \sqrt{c^2} = \sqrt{289} \] on the left, you get c on the right you get 17 c= 17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1btw, when you did 64 , you have to do that to *both sides*, like this 64 + 225  64 = c^2  64 but that is "legal" but not useful. as you see, adding 64+225 to get one number is the way to solve the problem
