2(x^2  2x  7) = 0 Δ = 4  ( 28) = 32 x = (4 ± 4 √2)/ 4 = 1 ± √2

Oops, x = (4 ± 4 √2)/ 2 = 2 ± 2√2

2x^2  4x  14 = 0 divide everything by 2 in order to get x^2 by itself without the coefficient x^2  2x  7 = 0 and then use the quadratic formula (b+sqrt(b^2  4ac))/2a (2 +or sqrt(4  4*1*7))/2 (2 + sqrt(32)) / 2 and (2  sqrt(32))/2 2 + 4sqrt(2) / 2 and 2  4sqrt(2) / 2 1 + 2sqrt(2) and 1  2sqrt(2)
