You can solve this graphically or algebraically. For either method, it will simplify the task if you add

*x*to both sides first.2

*x*− 1 = (*x*− 8)^{2}2

*x*− 1 =*x*^{2}− 16*x*+ 640 =

*x*^{2}− 18*x*+ 65You can use the Zero Product Property to solve.

Use one of the methods mentioned in part (a).

*x*= 1
