16. (e) ͙100 ෇ 10 since 10 2 ෇ 100. (f) Ϫ͙100 ෇ Ϫ10 since the negative sign is outside the radical sign. (g) ͙Ϫ100 is not a real number because the negative sign is inside the radical sign. No real number squared equals Ϫ100. Notice the difference among the expressions in parts (e), (f), and (g). Part (e) is the positive or principal square root of 100, part (f) is the negative square root of 100, and part (g) is the square root of Ϫ100, which is not a real number. Now Try Exercises 37, 41, 43, and 47.

Since each decimal number is given in hundredths, multiply both sides of the equation by 100. 09͑15 Ϫ x͒, by 100, remember the associative property: To multiply three terms, first multiply any two of them. 09͒͑15 Ϫ x͒ becomes 9͑15 Ϫ x͒. 07͑15͒ Multiply each term by 100. 07͑15͒ 6x ϩ 9͑15 Ϫ x͒ ෇ 7͑15͒ 6x ϩ 9͑15͒ Ϫ 9x ෇ 105 Ϫ3x ϩ 135 ෇ 105 Ϫ3x ϩ 135 Ϫ 135 ෇ 105 Ϫ 135 Ϫ3x ෇ Ϫ30 Ϫ3x Ϫ30 ෇ Ϫ3 Ϫ3 x ෇ 10 Distributive property; multiply.
