Solving Quadratic Equations using the Quadratic Formula

We'll use the Quadratic Formula to solve the given quadratic equation. Let's start by rewriting the equation so all of the terms are on the left-hand side and then simplify as much as possible. With this, we will be able to identify the values of and We see that and Let's substitute these values into the Quadratic Formula.
Solve for and Simplify
The solutions for this equation are Let's separate them into the positive and negative cases.
