It is a linear equation in x. It has a solution, which is x = -5

You were going along pretty good until you hit the words "to the second power". Right there, you no longer have a 'linear' equation. The question looks like you're trying to say one of the following two equations: Either x + y2 = 25 or (x + y)2 = 25. Neither is a linear equation. Each is the equation of a parabola.

25

Technically there are no variables in this equation, as 47 minus 25 is equal to x (22)
