    1. Add 2n^2 to both sides first

    I got 40n^2 + 304n - 128 = 0

    32 x 8 = 256 That definitely isn't right

    it should be 8(5n^2 + 38n - 16) right?

    ok, I'll just try to solve it. I think I am getting confused because I divided 128 by 8 wrongly :) I'll just ask you if am I stuck with some part :)

    8(5n-2)(n+8)=0 (5n-2)(n+8)=0 n=2/5 , n=-8 Is this correct?
