Start with the given equation. Square each factor Square 5 to get 25. Square to get Multiply Square 15 to get 225. Subtract 225 from both sides. Combine like terms. Take the square root of both sides or Break up the "plus/minus" to form two equations. or Take the square root of 100 to get 10. So the solutions are or If "x" is a distance or length, then this means that the negative answer doesn't make much sense. So if "x" is a length or distance, then the only answer is
