Y2  =  4                    Take the  ± square root  of both sides.

Y    =  ±√4

Y    =  ± 2

y2 = 4

y=2

because you can take the square root from y2 which gives you y and then take the square root of 4 which is equivalent to 2.

Sorry guest but Hectictar is correct   :)

 

By convention

\(\sqrt{y^2}=+y\)

that is true

 

BUT this is different becasuse the square root sign is not in the question. So

If

\(y^2=4\\ then\\ y=\pm\sqrt4=\pm2\)
