I am not allowed to. I obviously know which one is bigger using a calculator. This is problem solving
I know I need to set an equation making these vairbales equal to each other. Then I need to square this equation but this is all I know.

This is great! Once again thank you I have a question on the way you did your square roots. How exactly does the 4 square root of 33 = 528? I am not sure how to do this...could you show me?
