Work with Steps for 3x2 - 2x - 8 = 0

The below work with steps may helpful for grade school students to understand how to find unknown or root values of x for quadratic equation 3x2 - 2x - 8 = 0 or to solve the worksheet problems. step 1 Address the input parameters and values
Quadratic Equation : 3x2 - 2x - 8 = 0

step 2 Substitute a , b and c values in below formula

x = - b ± b² - 4ac2a

=-(-2) ± (-22 - 4 (3) (-8))2(3)

=4 - 4 (3)(-8)6

=4 + 966

=1006

step 3 Solve the above expression for minus & plus values
x1 = 2 + 1006

= 2 + 10/6

x2 = 2 - 1006

= 2 - 10/6

step 4 By simplifying the above expressions for x1 & x2
x1 = 12/6
x1 = 2
x2 = -8/6
x2 = -1.3333

x1 = 2 & x2 = -1.3333 are the roots for equation 3x2 - 2x - 8 = 0
