# Solve the Following Equations for X and Give, in Each Case, Your Answer Correct to One Decimal Place : X2 – 8x+5=0 - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

ConceptSolutions of Quadratic Equations by Factorization

#### Question

Solve the following equations for x and give, in each case, your answer correct to one decimal place :

x2 – 8x+5=0

#### Solution

x^2 - 8x + 5 = 0

Here a = 1, b = -8 and c = 5

x = (-b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4ac))/(2a)

= (-(-8) +- sqrt(44))/2 = (8 + 2sqrt11)/2 = 4 +- sqrt11 = 4 +- 3.3 = 7.3 and 0.7

Is there an error in this question or solution?
