Example Question #1 : Solve Quadratic Equations By Inspection, Quadratic Formula, Factoring, Completing The Square, And Taking Square Roots: Ccss.Math.Content.Hsa Rei.B.4b

Solve 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

We can solve this by using the quadratic formula.

The quadratic formula is

, , and  correspond to coefficients in the quadratic equation, which is

In this case , and  .

Since the number inside the square root is negative, we will have an imaginary answer.

We will put an , outside the square root sign, and then do normal operations.

Now we split this up into two equations.

So our solutions are   and
