Answer:

The answer #x_1=1+sqrt3# and #x_2=1-sqrt3#

Explanation:

show the steps below

#-0.5x^2+x+4=0#

Hit the two side by #-1/0.5#

#x^2-x/0.5-2=0#

#-0.5=-1/2#

#x^2-2x-2=0#

You can solve it by using the law:

#x_1=(-b+sqrt(b^2-4ac))/(2a)#

#x_2=(-b-sqrt(b^2-4ac))/(2a)#

in our formula the values of a b and c equal

#a=1 ,,,,,, b=-2 ,,,,, c=-2#

#x_1=(2+sqrt(4+8))/2#

#x_1=1+sqrt3#

in the same way #x_2# equal

#x_2=1-sqrt3#
