Is \(x=3?\)
1) \(x^2=9\)
x can be 3 or -3
insuff

2) \(x=\frac{y^2}{7}\); y is real
7x=\(y^2\), so x cannot be negative.
Insuff

Combined
x can be just 3

Where did this problem come from? I'm curious because I've never seen anything quite like the second statement in an official problem - although real numbers are tested on the GMAT, I haven't really seen a problem that focused on the properties of real numbers (as opposed to imaginary numbers) in this way.
