How do you solve using the completing the square method #3x^2 - 2x - 2 = 0#?
Isolate the x terms and complete the square.
First, we start by adding
We can use the distributive property to take out a 3 from the left-hand side so we can make the coefficient of the
Now, we can complete the square and simplify:
Now, we square root both sides and solve for x:
Therefore our solutions are:
