(17-A)SQUARED=2209 SOLVE FOR A
Divide 2209 by 17.
Then take the square root of that number.
i need help
Because this not a high school problem it has to simple they ask for 17 + other number squared = age.
This what you have to do 2209 root = 47- 17= 30
(17+a= 30)2= 2209
Her age 47
You can't squared 17 and take the amount out of 2209 because it will give you 1920 and you need to remember you just start from 1 to root and the result is 43.
Hope that help
