They are the same rule. If you disregard the x because K is less than 10^-3, at the end you can also check if it corresponds to the 5% rule. If it does follow the 5% rule, this means that the substance barely dissociates so K is small so it was correct to disregard x.
They're the same. You can disregard the X in the denominator when K < 10^-3 which essentially allows you to solve for X without the quadratic formula. It also means that X is small enough to be excluded in the equation.
