    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.

    Interpreting

    I'm assuming that the problem is x^2 = 2x where you need to solve for x. Then this becomes:

    x^2 - 2x = 0 and the rest you should know how to do.

    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.
