Uh,you're treating it as a variable but if you find the value of H(say 9) then take it's root you would get two solutions(±3).

√H = o
For H = 9:
o = √9
o = 3

Compare that to what could have been written, but wasn't:
±√H = o
o = ±√9
o = ±3
 

The root symbol never(in my experience) has a ± in front of it because the signs are taken only when a number is obtained not while it's still a variable.

Does this look familiar?

That's weird because in my country i've never seen people write that way.It's always assumed to be ±

Yes,this formula does use ± but i meant equations like y=√x

coincidentally, the quadratic equation could have been used to solve for o here: o^2 + 81o - 810

 

a = 1

b = 81

c = -810

Hi just to confirm, the answer we just type all 10 letters together in capitals right?

 

For example:

 

ABCDEFGHIJ

Doesn't matter how you format it for this one, as long as I can tell that you have the right word, phrase or name. (AKA letters need to be in the correct order, but any capitals or spaces that you might include or not won't matter.)

After this ends today I'd like to see how other people solved this, my method was really hacky and I'm wondering how others did it.
