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 · 2 years, 3 months ago

$$\sqrt{a^{2}} = |a|$$ · 2 years, 3 months ago

The first equation does not have a real solution. · 2 years, 3 months ago

I have one doubt, how did you get the 1st equation? · 2 years, 3 months ago
