 Question 353418: Solve the quadratic equation by completing the square: 4(x)^2 – 12(x) – 55 = 0 4(x)^2 – 12(x) = 55 4(x)^2 – 3(x) = 55 (x)^2 – 3(x) = 55/4 I know I have to add (b/2)^2 to both sides of the equation, which I calculated as 9/4...or do I keep this as (3/2)^2? (x^2 – 3x + 9/4) = (55/4 + 9/4) (x^2 – 3x + 9/4) = 16 And this is where I get lost. There seem to be so many different ways this is done and I can't figure out what my goal is. I've been trying to figure this out for a while and could use a little guidance. Thanks for your time :-) Click here to see answer by edjones(7569)
