why bother with that? If the area is given in yd^2, just give each side in yd. √520 = 22.8035... So, each side is about 22.8 yd Now, if they wanted the dimensions in feet, then you'd divide the area by 9, since each yard is 3 ft, but you would certainly not divide ...

You just have to remember that dividing a number by itself gives a quotient of 1. When it says "solve for x" that means you want to find the value of x all by itself. SO, if you have -6g = 42 You just need to divide by the -6 to get g all by itself. Since -6g = 42, -...
