Problem 3
The equation \(x^2=25\) has two solutions. This is because both \(5 \boldcdot 5 = 25\), and also \(\text5 \boldcdot \text5 = 25\). So, 5 is a solution, and also 5 is a solution.
Select all the equations that have a solution of 4:
\(10+x=6\)
\(10x=6\)
\(\text3x=\text12\)
\(\text3x=12\)
\(8=x^2\)
\(x^2=16\)
