I'm sorry I'm not sure which topic this is from. 

Express x2+8x+5=0 in the form (x+p)2+q=0

Thank you so much

For this equation, you will need to complete the square.

x^2 + 8x +5 = 0.

 

Add (b/2)^2 to get...  (Because you added 16 to the left side of the equation, you have to add 16 to the right side of the equation as well. And in this case, (b/2)^2 is 16.

 

(x^2 +8x + 16) + 5 = 16

 

 

Factor to get...

(x+4)^2 +5 = 16.

 

Subtract both sides by 16 to get...

(x+4)^2  -11 = 0.

 

Does anyone know how to write exponents in Windows 10?

Windows 10 has a "Microsoft Mathematics" calculator that you can download for free. You can do all math symbols on it by learning how to use it.

The calculator has a blank page that you can type anything you want and it will appear on that page. Then you can copy and paste it anywhere you want.
