Are these equations equal to zero?

If so, then I noticed that each one factors quite easily.

I will do the last one

g)

3m^2 + 5m - 2 =0

(3m - 1)(m + 2) = 0

3m-1 = 0 or m+2 = 0

m = 1/3 or m = -2

do the others the same way.

You can check your answers by subbing them back in.

e.g. if m = -2

LS = 3(4) + 5(-2) - 2

= 12 - 10 - 2

= 0

= RS

so my answer of m=-2 is correct

you are missing the exponents

if (a) should be 2x^2 - 7x - 5

a) 2x^2 - 7x - 5

does not factor, solve by using the quadratic formula or completing the square

if you are stuck, post your work and someone will help

tutors do not do your homework

Complete the square to solve -x^2-7x+6=-2x^2
