doesn't that mean it has to be greater than 2 because it is 2 and a root which leaves the other numbers? I'm still confused by that.

I am confused as to how we got b=4. If I plug in 4 for "b", the answer is 7. However, if I plug in a=4, and b=6, the answer becomes f(4)=4. Where did I go wrong?

You may be right, I did not like the question so much. Did you mean to say "a = 8 and NOT 4"? b = 6 seems to be ok. kindly show your calculations.

Thank you so much!

Official Explanation
The formula may only be applied for y greater than \(2\sqrt{3}\), therefore, the only choices available for b are 4, 6, and 8. If f(a) = b and b = 4, then, according to the formula, \(a=\frac{4^2+12}{4}=\frac{28}{4}=7\) Since 7 is not an option, b = 4 must not be part of the correct response. If f(a) = b and b = 6, then, according to the formula, \(a=\frac{6^2+12}{6}=\frac{48}{6}=8\) Since 8 is an option, a = 8 and b = 6 must be the correct response. The correct answer is 8. The correct answer is 6.
