If 20 – √x = 11, then what are possible values of x?

-81, -9, 3, 9, 81

Let's solve the equation 20 – √x = 11 by combining and rearranging. We get 9 = √x. Squaring both sides results in 81 = x, and this is the only value that x can take on. Thus, only answer 81 will be correct.

-9 squared is also 81 is it not?
