# How do you find the solution to the quadratic equation #x^2+8x+7=0#?

##### 1 Answer

from the equation

a=1 b=8 c=7

put your numbers in the formula

This give you two real solutions.

If inside the square root there was something negative, like

if inside the square root there was a 0 you would have only one solution right?

so your equation has the answers **x=-1 and x=-7** , you can see if it is right by putting the x inside your equation.

Never forget the signe of the constants a b and c and **ALWAYS** before start solving equale to 0, i mean, all the ehing different to zero have to be at the right or left of the equal signe, you can't start solving from
