1) w^2 - 5w = 11/4

2) z^2 + 11z = -21/4

3) k^2 - 8k - 7 = 0

4) v^2 - 7v + 1 = 0

**Reiny**, Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at 11:08pmall 4 are of the easy type with the coefficient of the square terms as 1

remember to take half of the middle term, then square it, and add it to both sides

w^2 - 5w + 25/4 = 11/4 + 25/4

(w-5/2)^2 = 36/4

w-5/2 = ± 6/2 = ± 3

w = 5/2 ± 3

= 11/2 or -1/2

try the others in the same way
