The problems reads: "The equation x^2-9x=0 has 2 solutions A and B. Where A < B.
The answers I got where x=0 and x=9, however my online homework is saying its incorrect. Please help me

(x-9)x=0
x^2=9x
(x-9/2)^2-81/4=0

1. x (x-9) =0
x = 0 and x = 9 are correct

ps
I bet they meant:
x^2 - 9 = 0
(x-3)(x+3) = 0
x = 3 or x = -3
