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

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

Solve x 2 + 2x - 1 = 0
**Weegy:** (x) = 4^2x - 100 when x = 2 f(x) = 4^2(2) - 100 f(x) = 16(2) - 100 f(x) = 32 - 100 f(x) = -68 **User:** What type of conic section is the following equation?
9x2 + 4y2 - 36 = 0
parabola,
circle,
hyperbola,
ellipse (More)

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)

a = 1, b = 2, c = -1

b^2 - 4ac = 2^2 - 4(1)(-1) = 8

Find the equation for the line containing the points (-2, -5) and (6, 3).
y = 2x - 3,
y = -2x - 3,
y = x + 3,
y = x - 3 **Weegy:** A. y = -2x - 3. The equation of the line through (1, -5) with slope -2 is y = -2x - 3 **User:** In a prize drawing at a fundraiser, you choose three different numbers from 1 to 8. How many ways are there to choose three numbers?
