X = -4.917
Step-by-step explanation: The goal is when solving for a variable is to get it by itself. First subtract 59 from +59 on the left side and do the same on the right side of the equation. Now you have 12x = -59.
X is multiplied by 12 and to get X by itself we do the opposite, which is divide. Divide 12x by 12 and divide -59 by 12. X = -4.917
The value of x will be:
We are given a quadratic equation in terms of the variable x as follows:
We know that any quadratic equation of the form:
has solution of the type:
a= 1 , b= -12 and c=59
Hence, we have the solution as:
The correct option is 3.
The given equation is
The quadratic formula is
Using the above formula, we get
Therefore option 3 is correct.
