i quess that is the question...on my homework paper under number 3

that's all my teacher gave me for question 3.

A(x)=x2 square, where A(x) is the area of a square with sides of length x. - Mar 4th 2010, 07:12 PMwingman

That's not a question, that's a statement.

There must be more. Perhaps there are several questions below, all of which apply to that square, or perhaps there was a single question above, with the square being one problem for which you are to answer that question.

But as it stands now, you simply don't have a question. - Mar 5th 2010, 09:13 AMwonderboy1953Interpreting
I'm assuming that the problem is $\displaystyle x^2 = 2x$ where you need to solve for x. Then this becomes:

$\displaystyle x^2 - 2x = 0$ and the rest you should know how to do. - Mar 6th 2010, 02:57 AMHallsofIvy
I don't. Since "A= x2", I think he meant "A= x^2", just giving the formula for area of a square with side of length x. We still don't know what he wants to

**do**with that formula.
