To start with x2 +14x + 17 = -96 equal to 0 x2 +14x + 113 = 0 use of the quadratic formula = (-14 +/- sqrt(196 - 4(1)113)) // 2 =( -14 +/- 16i ) // 2) = -7 +/- 8i Step - start by setting the equation equal to 0 Use of the quadratic formula Note the discriminant is negative, therefore, the answer is a complex number.
