Solve the equation
40^2 + 4a = 0

What I did was 4a (10a + 1) = 0 then I'm not sure what to do next...

  • Math - ,

    40 ^ 2 + 4a = 0

    1600 + 4a = 0

    4a = - 1600 Divide both sides with 4

    a = - 1600 / 4


    a = -400

  • Math - ,

    According to what you show in your solution, your equation was probably

    40a^2 + 4a = 0
    then
    4a(10a + 1) = 0
    so 4a = 0 or 10a+1 = 0
    a = 0 or a = -1/10
