It has to be one definite answer though. It tells me from this I should be able to calculate a side in a polygon (I need to find x). Do I try subbing both into the formula and see which works?

If you're measuring a side on a polygon is follows that as you're measuring a length. So discard the negative root

Both are correct answers to the equation, but only one is the answer you seek for the given problem. Only one of the answers makes sense as the length of a polygon's side, can you see which one and why?

Ok
