### Rearrange:

Rearrange the equation by subtracting what is to the right of the equal sign from both sides of the equation : 2*(5*x+2)^2-(48)=0

## Step 1 :

Equation at the end of step 1 :

2 • (5x + 2)2 - 48 = 0

## Step 2 :

2.1 Evaluate : (5x+2)2 = 25x2+20x+4

## Step 3 :

Pulling out like terms :3.1 Pull out like factors:50x2 + 40x - 40=10•(5x2 + 4x - 4)

Trying to factor by splitting the middle term

3.2Factoring 5x2 + 4x - 4 The first term is, 5x2 its coefficient is 5.The middle term is, +4x its coefficient is 4.The last term, "the constant", is -4Step-1 : Multiply the coefficient of the first term by the constant 5•-4=-20Step-2 : Find two factors of -20 whose sum equals the coefficient of the middle term, which is 4.

 -20 + 1 = -19 -10 + 2 = -8 -5 + 4 = -1 -4 + 5 = 1 -2 + 10 = 8 -1 + 20 = 19

Observation : No two such factors can be found !! Conclusion : Trinomial can not be factored

Equation at the end of step 3 :

10 • (5x2 + 4x - 4) = 0

## Step 4 :

Equations which are never true:4.1Solve:10=0This equation has no solution. A a non-zero constant never equals zero.

Parabola, Finding the Vertex:4.2Find the Vertex ofy = 5x2+4x-4Parabolas have a highest or a lowest point called the Vertex.Our parabola opens up and accordingly has a lowest point (AKA absolute minimum).We know this even before plotting "y" because the coefficient of the first term,5, is positive (greater than zero).Each parabola has a vertical line of symmetry that passes through its vertex. Because of this symmetry, the line of symmetry would, for example, pass through the midpoint of the two x-intercepts (roots or solutions) of the parabola. That is, if the parabola has indeed two real solutions.Parabolas can model many real life situations, such as the height above ground, of an object thrown upward, after some period of time. The vertex of the parabola can provide us with information, such as the maximum height that object, thrown upwards, can reach. For this reason we want to be able to find the coordinates of the vertex.For any parabola,Ax2+Bx+C,the x-coordinate of the vertex is given by -B/(2A). In our case the x coordinate is -0.4000Plugging into the parabola formula -0.4000 for x we can calculate the y-coordinate:y = 5.0 * -0.40 * -0.40 + 4.0 * -0.40 - 4.0 or y = -4.800

Solve Quadratic Equation by Completing The Square

4.3Solving5x2+4x-4 = 0 by Completing The Square.Divide both sides of the equation by 5 to have 1 as the coefficient of the first term :x2+(4/5)x-(4/5) = 0Add 4/5 to both side of the equation : x2+(4/5)x = 4/5Now the clever bit: Take the coefficient of x, which is 4/5, divide by two, giving 2/5, and finally square it giving 4/25Add 4/25 to both sides of the equation :On the right hand side we have:4/5+4/25The common denominator of the two fractions is 25Adding (20/25)+(4/25) gives 24/25So adding to both sides we finally get:x2+(4/5)x+(4/25) = 24/25Adding 4/25 has completed the left hand side into a perfect square :x2+(4/5)x+(4/25)=(x+(2/5))•(x+(2/5))=(x+(2/5))2 Things which are equal to the same thing are also equal to one another. Sincex2+(4/5)x+(4/25) = 24/25 andx2+(4/5)x+(4/25) = (x+(2/5))2 then, according to the law of transitivity,(x+(2/5))2 = 24/25We"ll refer to this Equation as Eq.

You are watching: Solve for x if 2(5x + 2)2 = 48.

#4.3.1 The Square Root Principle says that When two things are equal, their square roots are equal.Note that the square root of(x+(2/5))2 is(x+(2/5))2/2=(x+(2/5))1=x+(2/5)Now, applying the Square Root Principle to Eq.#4.3.1 we get:x+(2/5)= √ 24/25 Subtract 2/5 from both sides to obtain:x = -2/5 + √ 24/25 Since a square root has two values, one positive and the other negativex2 + (4/5)x - (4/5) = 0has two solutions:x = -2/5 + √ 24/25 orx = -2/5 - √ 24/25 Note that √ 24/25 can be written as√24 / √25which is √24 / 5
