don't subtract 64 just add the two numbers
phi

64+225= c^2 add the numbers

  • anonymous
when i added 64+225 i got 289
phi
  • phi
yes, that means c^2 = 289 people "get rid of the square" by "taking the square root" of both sides

i got 17

and that's your answer
phi
  • phi
in other words, we do \[ \sqrt{c^2} = \sqrt{289} \] on the left, you get c on the right you get 17 c= 17
phi
  • phi
btw, 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
