solve a perfect square trinomial equation.

(4x+1)(x+4)=49

  • 11th grade -

    Rewrite it by multiplying it out, and factor.
    4x^2 + 17x -45 = 0.
    I don't see any "perfect square" here.
    It also does not factor easily. Use the quadratic equation.
    x = [-17 +/- sqrt(1009)]/8

    x = 1.846 is one of the two solutions
