Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That makes no sense. You are given the equation. Perhaps find the solutions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's just a quadratic equation. Have you solved any of those?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup. Solve the equation for x. You are given the equation. Your task is to find a value for x that satisfies the equation. 1^2 = 1 2^2 = 4 3^2 = 9 4^2 = 16 5^2 = 25 6^2 = 36 ... 10^2 = 100 ... 15^2 = 225 Are we getting close?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x^2=196\\ x\times x = 196\\ x = \pm\sqrt{196}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It seemed to me that we were not worried about that other solution, based on the visual observation of the problem statement. We certainly aren't going to expect a student at this level to find all three solutions to the next problem.
