# Math Help - Quadratic Equation

$k^2-7=0$
I don't even know where to start. There wasn't any examples in my book that matches this problem. If anyone could assist.

Edit: I'm sorry, It's "0"

you can start from this point:

$k^2=7$

solve for k ...

OR

from this piont:

$k^2-(\sqrt 7)^2=0$

factorize and solve ...
