Solve the quadratic equation by factoring.
5x2 - 8 = 39x

5x^2 - 8 = 39x; 5x^2 - 39x - 8 = 0; (5x + 1)(x - 8) = 0; 5x + 1 = 0; 5x = -1; x = -1/5; x - 8 = 0; x = 8 x = -1/5 or x = 8

5x^2 - 8 = 39x;

5x^2 - 39x - 8 = 0;

(5x + 1)(x - 8) = 0;

5x + 1 = 0; 5x = -1; x = -1/5;

x - 8 = 0; x = 8

x = -1/5 or x = 8

5x^2 - 39x - 8 = 0;

(5x + 1)(x - 8) = 0;

5x + 1 = 0; 5x = -1; x = -1/5;

x - 8 = 0; x = 8

x = -1/5 or x = 8

apply the quadratic formula to find the roots of the given function, and then graph the function:f(x) = x2 + 4 **Weegy:** f(x)=x^2-4
a=1,b=0,c=-4
x1= (0+sqrt(0+16))/2
x1=2
x2= (0-sqrt(0+16))/2
x2= -2 (More)

complete the square, and find the roots of the quadratic equation.x2 - 2/3x = 0 x = 1/2 (3-sqrt(37)) x = 1/2 (3+sqrt(37)) **Weegy:** x^2-(2/3)*x=0
x(x-(2/3)) = 0
so x=0 or x-(2/3)=0
- > x=0 or x=2/3

12x^2 - 10x - 42 = 0

2(2x + 3)(3x - 7) = 0;

2(2x + 3) = 0; 4x + 6 = 0; 4x = -6; x = -6/4; x = -3/2

3x - 7 = 0; 3x = 7; x = 7/3

Solution: x = -3/2 or 7/3

2(2x + 3)(3x - 7) = 0;

2(2x + 3) = 0; 4x + 6 = 0; 4x = -6; x = -6/4; x = -3/2

3x - 7 = 0; 3x = 7; x = 7/3

Solution: x = -3/2 or 7/3

x2 + 16x = 0 You can solve the above these three nethod by 1) factoring, 2) quadratic formula, and 3) completing the square
**Weegy:** You can solve it through 2) quadratic formula. Ask another one! (More)

What do we do if the middle term of the quadratic equation (bx) is missing? Who wants to give the following a try?
2x2 + 1 = 0
**Weegy:** The syntax of quadratic equation that we are familiar with is ax^2+bx+c=0. This actually is an adfected quadratic equation.
The real form is ax^2+b=0, which is a pure quadratic equation.
2x^2+1=0
or, 2x^2=-1.
or, x^2=-1/2
or, x=sqrt(-1/2). (More)
