85+x^2=(x-17)^2

85+x^2=x^2-34x+289

85=-34x+289

-204=-34x

6=x

THE NUMBER IS *drumroll*6! im answering my own problem, pls help me, show me wrong parts, help me out here, work with me.

mcgraw?

yup! thats it!

...........yes?

which book? AoPS or McDOUGAl or stuff?

thx yall

probability of a square number is 2/6 = 1/3 probability of not a square is 4/6 = 2/3 at least one die shows a square number is let S = square number N = not a square number outcomes: SS = (1/3)^2 SN = (1/3)(2/3) NS = (2/3)(1/3) NN = (2/3)^2 so at least one would be (SS + SN + NS) = 1/9 + 2/9 + 2/9 = 5/9 or everything but NN (1 - NN) = 1 - 4/9 = 5/9 welcomes!

so wht constant?

ill be happy to help when you post the number.

thx melody! can you solve this?\($\frac{2\sqrt[3]9}{1 + \sqrt[3]3 + \sqrt[3]9}.$\)

ok, let us get it straight. are you cheating on AoPS? then, he chooses numbers bewteen 0 and what? looks like you need to tell s the number of numbers! or the blank. :D welcome!

it helped! thx! NOW IMA GLEAN YA(joke. just read sythe. it's awesome.!)
