# HELP math problem

1. Determine whether the following equations have a solution or not? Justify your answer.

a) x2 + 3x - 15 = 0
b) x2 + x + 4 = 0
c) x2 – 4x - 7 = 0
d) x2 – 8x + 16 = 0
e) 2x2 - 3x + 7 = 0
f) x2 – 4x - 77 = 0
g) 3x2 - 7x + 6 = 0
h) 4x2 + 16x + 16 = 0

2. If x = -3 and x = 4, then form a quadratic equation.

3. What type of solution do you get for quadratic equations where D < 0? Give reasons for your answer. Also provide an example of such a quadratic equation and find the solution of the equation.

4. Create a real-life situation that fits into the equation (x + 3)(x - 5) = 0 and express the situation as the same equation.

• You can also google Saxon Math and get live help over the phone, I think. At least I did with 3 of my older kids yrs ago. I homeschooled them. You can also buy an algebraic calculator that will help solve those problems for you.
