I simply made a typo. The answer is not wrong. So, I forgot the plus and minus sign. I am not going to give myself a failing grade on my journey through college algebra.No, your answer is incorrect.

You need to remember the following.

If A^2 =B (and B is not negative), then A = +/- sqrt(B)

So if D^2 = 2.5H/N . the D = +/- sqrt(2.5H/N)

What in the world is that comment suppose to mean? It sounds like whining. If you can't handle people checking your work (that is, pointing out mistakes), then why are you posting here?So, I forgot the plus and minus sign.

I think you're jumping to wild conclusions, again.I am not going to give myself a failing grade on my journey ...
