Suppose that $$a$$ is a nonzero constant for which the equation $$ax^2+20x+7=0$$ has only one solution. Find this solution.

Completing the square, we get (20/7*x + 7)^2 = 0, so a = (20/7)^2 = 400/49.

The discriminant in the quadratic formula must equal 0

$$\triangle=0\\ b^2-4ac=0\\ 400-28a=0\\ 400=28a\\ a=14\frac{2}{7}$$
