Which of the following is a soultion to the quadratic equation below x^2 - 3x - 54 =0

9 or -6

Step-by-step explanation:

To solve, I would suggest factoring.

You need to find two numbers which can be multiplied for 54 and also combined in some way to get 3. In this case, 9 and 6 are perfect.

[tex]x^2-3x-54=0\\(x-9)(x+6)=0[/tex]

Next, you can set both of your terms equal to zero to find your possible solutions.

[tex]x-9=0\\x=9\\[/tex]

or

[tex]x+6=0\\x=-6[/tex]

a² + b²= c²

24² + 7² = c²

c= 25

[tex]What is the value of x? enter your answer in the box. x =[/tex]

The correct answer is: b
