Therefore, either (x - 5) = 0 i.e. x = 5 or (x + 1) = 0 i.e. x = -1.
COMPLETING THE SQUARE METHOD
can also be written as
Square-rooting both sides we have
i.e. either x = 5 or x = -1.
QUADRATIC FORMULA METHOD
The formula, developed by Sreedharacharya, for solving quadratic equation
Comparing with the standard quadratic equation, here a = 1, b = -4, c = -5.
Substituting these values in the formula we obtain
So either x = 5 or x = -1.
