x^2 - 4 = 0
factorize by using the difference squares formula
a^2 - b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)
And you can use here :
\[x^2 - a^2 = (x + a) (x - a)\]
Or if you don't wanna do this, then add 4 both the sides and then take square root both the sides.
so,... whats the answer ?
its not B
Who told you that answer is B?
\(x^2 - 4 = 0\)
Add 4 both the sides and tell me what did you get?
well, look at how the factorization works
x^2 - 4 = 0
x^2 - 2^2 = 0
use the diff square formula,
(x+2)(x-2) = 0
solve for x
find the zeroes by make each factor be zero
subtract by 2 from both sides,
x+2-2 = 0-2
x = -2
do for the rest!
I dont really have to do the rest because there isnt another -2 in the other choices.
hehe, good tricky :)
do for the rest is actually for your own knowledge and not for answer choices you are given with..
