What method(s) would you choose to solve the equation? Explain your reasoning.
4x^248=0
a. Quadratic formula, graphing; the equation cannot be factored easily since the numbers are large.
Selected:b. Square roots; there is no xterm.
c. Factoring; the equation is easily factored.
d. Quadratic formula, completing the square or graphing; the coefficient of x2term is 1, but the equation cannot be factored.

4x^248=0
No x term, this is the easiest type, first divide each term by 4 to get
x^2  12 = 0
add 12 to both sides
x^2 = 12
take √ of both sides
x = ± √12 = ± 2√3 👍
