Notice that in this equation, the x has a 4 added to it, the result is squared, and it equals 21. You need to UNDO those operations in reverse order. First undo the square, by square rooting both sides. Don't forget to put the PLUS or MINUS when you do this. Next, undo the +4 by subtracting 4 from each side: R^2 at SCC
