Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, just a sec...\[x=\frac{ 6 \pm \sqrt{\left( 6 \right)^24\left( 17 \right) \left(8 \right)} }{ 2\left( 17 \right) }\]right so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[x=\frac{ \left( 6 \right)\pm \sqrt{36+544} }{ 2\left( 17 \right) }=\frac{ \left( 6 \right)\pm \sqrt{580} }{ 2\left( 17 \right) }=\frac{ \left( 6 \right)\pm \sqrt{4\cdot145} }{ 2\left( 17 \right) }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[=\frac{ \cancel{2}\cdot\left( 3 \right)\pm \cancel{2}\cdot \sqrt{145} }{ \cancel{2}\left( 17 \right) }=\frac{ \left( 3 \right)\pm \sqrt{145} }{ \left( 17 \right) }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh wait. i see what i did there.. i forgot to take the square root of the 4, i wrote 4 instead of 2. so when i simplified i was still left with the 2 in the numerator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0good call, my friend. youre pretty good at this! :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor out a 2 from the numerator and denominator:\[=\frac{ 2\cdot\left( 3 \right)\pm 2\cdot \sqrt{145} }{ 2\left( 17 \right) }=\frac{ 2\cdot\left( \left( 3 \right)\pm \sqrt{145} \right) }{ 2\cdot\left( 17 \right) }\]
