X2 + y2 = 13 where y = 2?

X2 + (2)2 = 13

X2 + 4 = 13

X2 = 13 - 4

X2 = 9

X = srt(9) = plus or minus 3

(-3)2 + (2)2 does not equal 13

(3)2 + (2)2 = 13

Answer X = 3

x2 + y2 = 13 where y =2

therefore x2 + 4 = 13

x2 = 13-4

x2 = 9

x = sq root of 9 which is 3

Answer x =3 (c)

For:

x^2 + y^2 = 13,

... substituting y = 2:

x^2 + 2^2 = 13

=>

x^2 + 4 = 13

=>

x^2 = 9

=>

x = ±√9

=>

x = ±3

So, x = -3 or x = 3

x^2 + y^2 = 13

sub y = 2

x^2 + 2^2 = 13

x^2 = 13-4

x^2 = 9

x= +3 / -3

x^2 + y^2 = 13

y=2

x^2 +(2)^2 =13

x^2 +4 =13

x^2 = 13 -4

x^2 = 9

square root on both sides

x = sqrt (9)

x = 3

x² + y² = 13

x² + 2² = 13

x² + 4 = 13

x² = 13-4 =9

x²=9

x=±√(3)= ±3

So the answer is c.
