what do you do when you get this when completing the square of a quadratic equation?

$$x = \frac{2-2\sqrt{3}}{2}$$

$$x=\frac{2\pm2\sqrt3}{2} \\~\\ x=\frac{2(1\pm\sqrt3)}{2} \\~\\ x=1\pm\sqrt3$$               We can reduce this fraction by 2  .

x  =  1 + √3        and         x  =  1 - √3

We can get approximate solutions by putting it into a calculator:

x  ≈  2.732         and         x  ≈  -0.732

These should be the  x  values that cause the  y  to equal zero.

Does that help any? I don't know what you mean by  " remove the zero " .
