Q:

What is the solution of the equation x2 − 12x = 8?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:x = 12.63        or         x= -0.63Step-by-step explanation:From my understanding the question is x² - 12x = 8This will be solved through a quadratic equation formula.Step 1: Form a quadratic equationx² - 12x = 8x² - 12x - 8 = 0Step 2: Apply the quadratic formulaa = 1, b = -12, c = -8x = -b±√b²-4ac           2ax = -(-12)±√(-12)²-4(1)(-8)                  2(1)Step 3: Find the value of xx = 12±4√(11            2x = 12+4√(11)                  or            x =  12-4√(11)             2                                                  2x = 12.63                         or            x= -0.63!!
