 Question 264629: Complete the square,simplify. Express any complex numbers using i notation (2x )(x ) I am stuck because I can not figure out which 2 numbers multiply to 9 and add to 5.If I use (2x+3)(x+1) I can get 5x but no 9. Please help! This is where I always get stuck while factoring. Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)

 Question 264649: This problem looks easy, but I can't figure it out. I think I am just supposed to factor it? (x+3)(x+3)....?? Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)

 Question 264648: Solve by quadratic formula and simplify Do I just factor this problem now since it is already in standard form? I am not sure Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)

 Question 264732: Simplify the equation, then solve by the quadratic formula. Use i notation for nonreal complex numbers. 3x^2 -4x = -4 (4/2)^2 = 4 3x^2+4 -4x= Now I am confused! Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)

 Question 264754: Solve the equations using the sq rt property 3x-9= +/ sq rt 81 3x = 9 +/ sq rt 81 x = 9+/ sq rt 81/3 Should I reduce this all the way? It seems like a strange answer because 9,81,and 3 are all connected. Click here to see answer by jim_thompson5910(28550)
