x^2=25

What is the variable equal too?

I would expect here "to" like this, but instead of it, it's "too".

That makes me confused.

What a role does it play here?

A person who told me this is a New Zealander

    I dunno, looks like an erratum/typo – Highstaker Feb 17 '17 at 9:07

  • I've asked her. Her explanation was from "My English teacher taught me this " to "It's obviously wrong. But I still will write like this ". At the end it roll back to : "I didn't a survey. I don't know how kiwis will say it". – Dirty Hippy Feb 20 '17 at 7:33
  • And she also said that she use it because:"It has a lot of answers" – Dirty Hippy Feb 20 '17 at 8:02

It's a wrong placement of the word, or a typo. It should be to, not too. Too does not provide any meaning to this sentence. Too can be at end of a sentence, though. Refer http://grammarist.com/usage/to-too/ for more examples of to and too.
