To determine

To find:

To determine the values of a, b, and c that are needed in order to use the Quadratic Formula

Explanation

Consider the following equation,

(3x+2)(5x4)=48.

First multiply the terms inside the bracket to get the following,

(3x+2)(5x4)=4815x212x+10x8=4815x22x8=48

Subtract 48 on both sides to get the following,

15x22x848=484815x22x56=<
