solve by factoring
________________________________________
a^2- 6a +9=0

Solution. As , we know that if
,
then
a-3=0 or a-3=0
So, a=3 is the unique root.

Use the even -root prpoerty to solve each question

x^2= 9/4

Solution. , b y the even -root property, we have
x=3/2 or x=-3/2

(x-3)^2=16
Solution. , b y the even -root property, we have
x-3=4 or x-3=-4
So,
x=7 or ...
