For how many real values of <math>\displaystyle x</math> is <math>\sqrt{120-\sqrt{x}}</math> an integer?
 
 
 
<math> \mathrm{(A) \ } 3\qquad \mathrm{(B) \ } 6\qquad \mathrm{(C) \ } 9\qquad \mathrm{(D) \ } 10\qquad \mathrm{(E) \ } 11 </math>
 
== Solution ==
 
Since <math>\sqrt{x}</math> cannot be negative, the only integers we get can from our expression are square roots less than 120. The highest is
 
 
 
<math>11^2=121</math>
 
Thus our set of values is
 
 
 
{<math>11^2, 10^2, 9^2,....2^2, 1^2, 0^2</math>}
 
 
 
And our answer is '''11, (E)'''
