use a calculator and the quadratic formula to find approximate solution for the equation:

8.06x^{2}+25.8726x=25.047256 - Mar 2nd 2013, 06:37 AMNehushtanRe: Algebra
$\displaystyle 8.06x^2+25.8726x-25.047256=0$

$\displaystyle x=\frac{-25.8726\pm\sqrt{25.8726^2-4(8.06)(-25.047256)}}2$

Since you are allowed to use a calculator, use it and round off your answers to three decimal places.
