oh it wasn't a question but I do want to know if it is valid or not. · 1 year, 8 months ago

Almost correct. Keep in mind you're dealing with real numbers only, so $$\sqrt {x^2} = |x|$$ is true. Where $$|x|$$ is the absolute value of $$x$$.

So the resultant value is non-negative, and not always positive, take $$x=0$$ as an example. · 1 year, 8 months ago
