Hello I have no idea what I'm doing wrong in this simple equation: Code: 0 = 3^2  4 * 2 * x 3^2 = 4 * 2 * x 9 = 4 * 2 * x 9 / (4 * 2) = x x = 1.125 Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I don't see anything wrong in your derivation! But this is not a number theory problem, you posted it in the wrong section.

0 = 3^2  4 * 2 * x ; then x = 1.125 ; 3^2 = 9 0 = (3)^2  4 * 2 * x ; then x = 1.125 ; (3)^2 = 9
