What are the approximate solutions of 2x2 − 7x = 3 rounded to the nearest hundredth? No real solutions x ≈ −0.77 and x ≈ 7.77 x ≈ −0.39 and x ≈ 3.89 x ≈ −3.89 and x ≈ 0.39

    Im confused by this problem. 2x2 would make people think you're multiplying 2 by 2. What does the equation really look like?

    2x^2 - 7x = 3

    factor first: (2x-1)(x-3)

    so either 2x-1=0 or x-3 = 0

    so x= 1/2 or x = 3

    2x^2 - 7x = 3 2x^2 - 7x - 3 = 0 (2x-1)(x-3) ===> this line's wrong

    so: from your equation a = 2 b = -7 c = -3 sub those numbers into the equation I gave you and you'll get answers for x

    \[or x = \frac{ 7 + \sqrt{73} }{ 4}\]

    so x = 3.886 and x = -0.386
