Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, so \(x^210x=24\) the coefficient of 'x' here is 10 divide it by 2 and square the result, what u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2***the coefficient of 'x' here is 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it would be x^25x=24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no no.. the coefficient of x is 10, right ? divide it by 2, you get 5, but then square it, \(\large (5)^2=...?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, we add 25 on both sides \(x^210x+25=24+25\) notice that left side is a perfect square! of ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.249 is right side, and is the square of 7 what about left side ? x^210x+25 is squaree of ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\((x5)^2 =... ?\) can u find ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2nopes, \((a+b)^2=a^2+2ab+b^2\) so, \((x5)^2 =x^210x+25\) so here we have \((x5)^2=7^2\) take square root on both sides!

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2did u take square root on both sides ? what u got ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\((x5)^2=7^2 \implies x5 = \pm 7 \\ x5 =7 \quad \quad x5=7\) get 2 values of 'x' from here!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok Solve the equation by completing the square: x2  8x + 15 = 0

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2same thing, here, the coefficient of x is 8 divide it by 2, what u get ?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, then square it...what u get ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so, adding 16 on both sides... \(x^28x+16=15+16\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@GoldPhenoix please help

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(x^28x+16 = (x4)^2\) so, we have \((x4)^2=1\) just take square root on both sides!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you take square root, the square part goes away! (x+4) =+1 or x4 =1 find 2 values of x from here...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a. x = + 5 b. x =3 or x = 5 c. x =3 or x = 5 d. x =3 or x =5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x4 = 1 , x = 1+4 = 3 is correct but for 2nd part, you get x4 =1 x= 1+4 = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know how to complete the square? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see. Here's an example:\[\Large x^2 + \color{red}6x =40 \]

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What you do is take that coefficient (number beside) the x with NO EXPONENT. In our case, 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Take half of it, 3, and then square it, getting 9.

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, add that to BOTH SIDES of the equation. \[\Large x^2 +\color{red}6x\color{blue}{+9}=40\color{blue}{+9}\]

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplify. \[\Large x^2+\color{red}6x+9=49\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You'll notice that the left side is now what you call a 'perfect square trinomial' It may be expressed as... \[\Large (x+\color{red}3)^2=49\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice of course, that 3 is half of the original coefficient of x, which was 6. Now take the square root of both sides: \[\Large \sqrt{(x+3)^2}=\sqrt{49}\] Notice that the square root and the square (exponent 2) cancel out. But the square root of 49 may be either positive or negative 7. \[\Large x+3=\pm7\] Bring the 3 to the other side, you now get \[\Large x = 3\pm7\] which means either x = 3 + 7 = 4 or x = 3  7 = 10 Case Closed :)
