For each equation below, solve for w, if possible. Show all work. Homework Help ✎
5w2 = 17
5w2 − 3w − 17 = 0
2w2 = −3
w ≈ ± 1.84
Remember that since each equation has w² you should be looking for two possible answers.
It may help to use the Quadratic Formula.
w ≈ 2.17 and w ≈ 1.57
No real solution because you can't take the square root of a negative number.
