2x^2 + 6x - 8 = 0
2(x^2 + 3x - 4) = 0
2(x + 4)(x - 1) = 0
x = -4 or 1
The sum of the roots = -4 + 1 = -3
The product of the roots = (-4)(1) = -4

x^2 + 2x - 1 = 0
a = 1, b = 2, c = -1
b^2 - 4ac = 2^2 - 4(1)(-1) = 8
x = [-2 ± sqrt(8)]/2
= -1 ± sqrt(2)
The solution for the equation x^2 + 2x - 1 = 0 is x = -1 + sqrt(2) or x = -1 - sqrt(2)

9x^2 + 4y^2 - 36 = 0
9x^2 + 4y^2 = 36
x^2/4 + y^2/9 = 1
The type of conic section for the equation 9x^2 + 4y^2 - 36 = 0 is ellipse.

One number is five times another number. Their sum is 42. The two numbers are 7 and 35.

5x + x = 42

6x = 42

x = 7
