How do you solve 2x^2+7x+3 by completing the square?

May 1, 2016

There is a problem with the question.

Explanation:

As it is not an equation, it cannot be solved. There are two possibilities: The equation might have been $2 {x}^{2} + 7 x + 3 = 0$

or the question should have read,
write $2 {x}^{2} + 7 x + 3$ in the form of $a {\left(x + b\right)}^{2} + c$

Both of these could involve the process of completing the square.
