2-105.

Solve the following quadratic equations. Homework Help ✎

1. $-5x^2-2x-6=-2$

Multiply both sides of the equation by $−1$.

$5x^2+2x+6=2$

Subtract $2$ from both sides of the equation.

$5x^2+2x+4=0$

Use the Quadratic Formula.

$a=5\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ b=2\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ c=4$

$x = \frac{-(2)\pm\sqrt{(2)^{2}-4(5)(4)}}{2(5)}$

$x= \frac{-2\pm \sqrt{-76}}{10} = \frac{-2\pm 2\sqrt{19}i}{10} = \frac{-1}{5}\pm \frac{\sqrt{19}}{5}i$

1. $-2x^2=-x-9$

Use the same method as in part (a).
