hello, i need some one to help me through this problem, there are more but i figure if you work me through this one i should be able to get the others, but then agian i might find myself back here later tonight:-). I know i should probable not be asking to solve such a simple equation as this but i have my reasons. x^2+2x=5 i need to know which method ( factoring, square roots, or completing the square. ) and why and how to solve it that way. thanks a bunch in advance
