    \[ax^2+bx+c=0\\ x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\]

    I know how to do the quadratic formula I would really just want the answer to compare to mine and see if I got it right.

    a=1 b=8 c=-5 because of the standard form ax^2+bx+c Plug those numbers into a, b, and c for that quadratic formula. Just plug and chug my friend!``

    you can always replace 'x' with your answer and see it you get 0, if you do you got it right.
