Remember to wrap math in $$...$$ or $...$ to ensure proper formatting.
2 \times 3 $$2 \times 3$$
2^{34} $$2^{34}$$
a_{i-1} $$a_{i-1}$$
\frac{2}{3} $$\frac{2}{3}$$
\sqrt{2} $$\sqrt{2}$$

Sort by:

$$\sqrt{a^{2}} = \pm a$$

$$\sqrt{\frac{9}{4}} = \pm \frac{3}{2}$$ and similarly the other one .

we will consider only those values which satisfy the equality @Aayush Mani

Yeah seriously! It is wrong for x =1 too.
