8-107.

Use the Quadratic Formula to solve part (b) of problem 8-106 above. Did your solution match the solution you got by factoring and using the Zero Product Property (in part (b) of problem 8-106)?

$\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^{2}-4ac}}{2a}$

$3x^2 + 17x − 6 = 0$

$a = 3 b = 17 c = −6$

$x=\frac{-17\pm\sqrt{17^{ \; 2}-4(3)(-6)}}{2(3)}$

Solve the equation and compare your answer to part (b) of problem 8-106.
