Answer:

x =(4-√296)/2=2-√ 74 = -6.602

x =(4+√296)/2=2+√ 74 = 10.602

or:

x =(4-√296)/2=2-√ 74 = -6.602

x = 2 + i sqrt(66) or x = 2 - i sqrt(66)

Solve for x:

x^2 - 4 x + 70 = 0

Hint: | Solve the quadratic equation by completing the square.

Subtract 70 from both sides:

x^2 - 4 x = -70

Hint: | Take one half of the coefficient of x and square it, then add it to both sides.

Add 4 to both sides:

x^2 - 4 x + 4 = -66

Hint: | Factor the left hand side.

Write the left hand side as a square:

(x - 2)^2 = -66

Hint: | Eliminate the exponent on the left hand side.

Take the square root of both sides:

x - 2 = i sqrt(66) or x - 2 = -i sqrt(66)

Hint: | Look at the first equation: Solve for x.

Add 2 to both sides:

x = 2 + i sqrt(66) or x - 2 = -i sqrt(66)

Hint: | Look at the second equation: Solve for x.

Add 2 to both sides:

x = 2 + i sqrt(66) or x = 2 - i sqrt(66)
