MA.8.AR.2.3

Given an equation in the form of x²=p and x³=q, where p is a whole number and q is an integer, determine the real solutions.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction focuses on understanding that when solving x²=p, there is both a positive and negative solution.

Clarification 2: Within this benchmark, the expectation is to calculate square roots of perfect squares up to 225 and cube roots of perfect cubes from -125 to 125.
