Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In order to solve this, then first you should try to get rid of the square root. This gives you:\[7x=3^2\] now you want to isolate x, try and do that :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, you have \[3^2\] on the left side, that is 3*3 = 9, so you get \[7x=9\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But it is asking me to solve for x. And 2, 2 ,4,and 4 are the only optional answers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, and you have\[7x=9\] if you subtract 7 on both sides then you get \[x=2\]now you have that:\[x=\]
