## ninashabrang 2 years ago Solve 2x2 - 8x = -7. I just want to know if my answer is correct. I got x=2+- 2 sqr 2

1. swissgirl

$$2x^2-8x+7=0$$ $$A=2, B=-8, C=7$$ $$\large \frac{-(-8) \pm \sqrt{(-8)^2-4(2)(7)}}{2(2)}$$ $$\large \frac{8 \pm \sqrt{64-56}}{4}$$ $$\large \frac{8 \pm \sqrt{8}}{4}$$ $$\large \frac{8 \pm 2\sqrt{2}}{4}$$ $$\large \frac{4\pm \sqrt{2}}{2}$$ OR $$\large 2\frac{\pm \sqrt{2}}{2}$$

hmmm are you sure this is the right equation?

3. ninashabrang

oh sorry these are the answer choices: negative 2 plus or minus square root of 2 negative 2 plus or minus 2 square root of 2 quantity of 2 plus or minus square root of 2 all over 2 2 plus or minus square root of 2 end root over 2
