8-53.

For each equation below, solve for

*w*, if possible. Show all work. Homework Help ✎5

*w*^{2}= 175

*w*^{2}− 3*w −*17 = 02

*w*^{2}= −3

*w* ≈ ± 1.84

Remember that since each equation has *w*² 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.
