Help Me please.

x^4  - 2x^2   - 8  = 0        factor

 

(x^2 - 4)  (x^2 + 2)   =0

 

(x - 2)  (x + 2)  (x^2  + 2)  = 0

 

Set the   factors   = 0    and solve

 

x  - 2 = 0      x +  2  =0                     x^2  + 2   = 0

x  = 2            x  = -2                         x^2   = -2        take both roots

                                                         x  = āˆš-2        x  = - āˆš2

                                                          x  = iāˆš2        x  =    -i āˆš2

 

 

 

cool cool cool
