SOLVE FOR X CORRECT TO 4 DECIMAL PLACES
- Math - Damon, Tuesday, September 2, 2008 at 5:35am
try to factor first
2x (x-9) = 0
so x = 0 or x = 9
x^2 -6 x - 7 = 0
(x-7)(x+1) = 0
so x = 7 or x = -1
(6x-1)(x+1) = 0
x = 1/6 or x = -1
if you can not factor, complete the square or use the quadratic equation
x = [ -b +/- sqrt (b^2 - 4 a c) ] / 2a
x = [ -6 +/- sqrt (36 - 8) ] / 2
use calculator to 4 places
