    The steps to derive the quadratic formula are shown below: Step 1 ax2 + bx + c = 0 Step 2 ax2 + bx = - c Step 3 x squared over a plus b over a times x equals negative c over a Step 4 x2 + b over a times x plus b squared over 4 times a squared equals negative c over a plus b squared over 4 times a squared Step 5 x2 + b over a times x plus b squared over 4 times a squared equals negative 4 multiplied by a multiplied by c, all over 4 multiplied by a squared plus b squared over 4 times a squared Step 6 the square of the quantity x plus b over 2 times a equals b squared minus 4 multiplied by a multiplied by c, all over 4 times a squared Step 7 x plus b over 2 times a equals plus or minus square root of the quantity b squared minus 4 times a times c over 4 times a squared equals plus or minus square root of b squared minus 4 times a times c, all divided by 2 times a Step 8 x = -negative b over 2 times a plus or minus square root of b squared minus 4 times a times c, all divided by 2 times a Step 9 x = negative b plus or minus square root of b squared minus 4 times a times c, all divided by 2 times a Which of the following is the first incorrect step? Step 2 Step 3 Step 4 Step 7

    D)<====ANSWER Step 7 should read "x plus b over 2 times a equals plus or minus square root of the quantity b squared minus 4 times a times c over 4 times a squared equals plus or minus square root of b squared minus 4 times a times c, all divided by '2' times a".
