Solve by completing the square.

a² - 2√(3a) + 2 = 0

Solve for x. I don't know if you can use completing the square for this problem.

ax^n + b = 0

• Algebra 2 -

suspect you mean
a^2 -2 a sqrt 3 = -2

half of 2 sqrt 3 squared is 3 so add 3 to both sides

a^2 -2 a sqrt 3 + 3 = 1

(a-sqrt 3)^2 = 1

a = sqrt 3 +/-1
