 Question 360224: Hello! Jess here! I was wondering if someone could help me. This week my class is working on problems and I don't quite understand how to obtain the answer of some of them. If someone could be so kind as to lead me through (with all the steps) the following problem, I would be most appreciative. The directions are: Solve the equation by the square root property. 6x^2=96Found 2 solutions by JBarnum, checkley77:Answer by JBarnum(2088)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!first you need to get by itself. divide by 6 take the square root of each side and Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!6x^2=96 6x^2-96=0 extract the common factor 6. 6(x^2-16)=0 factor the quadratic equation. 6(x+4)(x-4)=0 solve the two factors. x+4=0 x=-4 ans. x-4=0 x=4 ans. Proofs: 6(-4)^2=96 6*16=96 6*4^2=96 6*16=96 96=96
