Hello Guest,

 

Can anyone use the p-q formula to solve this equation?

 

\(x^2+2x=8\)

 

Thanks in advance

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

the p-q formula: \(x_1 \mbox { and } x _2 = -\frac{p}{2} \pm \sqrt{\Big(\frac{p}{2}\Big)^2-q}\) .

 

\(x^2 + 2x = 8 \ |\ -8\)

 

. . . let \((p, \mbox { } q) = (2, \mbox { } -8)\) .

 

\(x_1 \mbox { and } x_2 = \frac{-2}{2} \pm \mbox {} \sqrt{\Big(\frac{2}{2}\Big)^2-(-8)}\)

 

\(x_1 \mbox { and } x_2 = -1 \pm \mbox {} \sqrt{ 1 + 8 }\)

 

\(x_1 = -1 + 3\)

\(x _1 = 2\)

 

\(x_2 = -1 - 3\)

\(x_2 = -4\)

 

This equation has two solutions, namely \(x_1 = 2\) and \(x_2 = -4\) .

 

Hope this was helpful. ^^
