Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We first need to set it up in the form \(ax^2+bx+c=0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well ya like @shamil98 has shown we subtract 4 from both sides to achieve this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok I got that. I have x^23x4=0 but I am not sure where to go from there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5you can use the quadratic formula or just factor it to (x+b)(xb) form. and then solve for (x+b)=0 and (xb) = 0 to get your solutions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We need to find 2 numbers that when you add them they equal 3 and when you multiply them they equal 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well that would be 4 and 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5so, in (x+b)(xb)=0 form it would be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So basically then we replace 3x with 4x +1x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So our equation would look as follows \(x^24x+1x4\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5(x4)(x+1) = 0 after you put it in that form x  4 = 0 and x + 1 = 0 solve for x to get your solutions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then we group the first 2 terms and teh last 2 terms \( (x^24x)+(x4)=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\( (x^24x)+(x4)=0\)

swissgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then we factor out from each bracket x(x4)+1(x4)=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5You made a mistake I believe.. @swissgirl

shamil98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Well, she is asking how to find the solution, I have no idea what you are showing.. the original equation is x^2  3x  4. factored out (x4)(x+1)= 0 x = 1 x =4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5x^2  4x + x 4 can just be simplified to x^2 3x  4 .....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes but I am just demonstrating how you factored it out This is the typical way it is taught in school and when it becomes more challenging then it is imperative that you write it out in this fashion

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Katelynmorris which method are you familiar with?

shamil98

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5It looks more complicated with your method x^2 3x 4 you know that the values are 1 and  4. just put that like this (x4)(x+1) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am lost after the x^24x+1x4=0..Solving by factoring

swissgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But @shamil98 it works this time but what happens if the equation was \(3x^23x4=0\) ?

Katelynmorris

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok so after the (x4)(x+1)=0 that gives me x how?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5(x4)(x+1)=0 you put x4=0 and x+1=0 to get your solutions .

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.53x2−3x−4=0 swiss, i would use the quadratic formula. instead of trying to factor it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.5Your method is much more complicated than it needs to be, just make it simple..

swissgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only reason why I was showing him that method since that is the method taught in schools

swissgirl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plus your method wont work for complicated equations trust me kid
