I already did the first one today. Use the same process for the second one. Step 1: Add the opposite of the constant term to both sides: Step 2: Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the lead coefficient: Step 3: Divide the first degree term coefficient by 2 and square the result. Add that result to both sides: (8 divided by 2 is 4, 4 squared is 16) Step 4: Factor the perfect square trinomial in the RHS. Step 5: Take the square root of both sides, remembering to consider both the positive and negative roots. Step 6: Add the opposite of the constant term in the LHS to both sides.
