    quadratic equation problem 3

    x^2 - 50=0
    (7.07)(7.07) - 50 =0

    Is this the correct way to write out a quadratic equation like that?

    This is a quadratic equation

    I assume that you want to solve for x

    x^2=50

     <br />
x=\pm 7.07<br />

    Is that what you want to know ?

    Question

    Are you supposed to use decimal approximations, instead of the exact answers?
