    Ok, so first let's plug it into the quadratic formula -b plus or minus √b^2-4*a*c --------------------------------- 2*a so we get -8 (+-) √8^2-4*2*1 / 2 * 2 let's use basic order of operations -8 (+-)√56 ----------- 4 Now, remember to simplify your radical as best as you can. -8(+-) 2√14 ------------- 4 but -8, 4 , and 2 all go into 2, so we can simplify all numbers by that (except the radical) so we get -4 (+-) √14 ------------ 2
