# Calculator Output

```Simplifying
x2 = 0.6x + -0.08

Reorder the terms:
x2 = -0.08 + 0.6x

Solving
x2 = -0.08 + 0.6x

Solving for variable 'x'.

Reorder the terms:
0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = -0.08 + 0.6x + 0.08 + -0.6x

Reorder the terms:
0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = -0.08 + 0.08 + 0.6x + -0.6x

Combine like terms: -0.08 + 0.08 = 0.00
0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.00 + 0.6x + -0.6x
0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.6x + -0.6x

Combine like terms: 0.6x + -0.6x = 0.0
0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.0

Begin completing the square.

Move the constant term to the right:

Add '-0.08' to each side of the equation.
0.08 + -0.6x + -0.08 + x2 = 0.0 + -0.08

Reorder the terms:
0.08 + -0.08 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.0 + -0.08

Combine like terms: 0.08 + -0.08 = 0.00
0.00 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.0 + -0.08
-0.6x + x2 = 0.0 + -0.08

Combine like terms: 0.0 + -0.08 = -0.08
-0.6x + x2 = -0.08

The x term is -0.6x.  Take half its coefficient (-0.3).
Square it (0.09) and add it to both sides.

Add '0.09' to each side of the equation.
-0.6x + 0.09 + x2 = -0.08 + 0.09

Reorder the terms:
0.09 + -0.6x + x2 = -0.08 + 0.09

Combine like terms: -0.08 + 0.09 = 0.01
0.09 + -0.6x + x2 = 0.01

Factor a perfect square on the left side:
(x + -0.3)(x + -0.3) = 0.01

Calculate the square root of the right side: 0.1

Break this problem into two subproblems by setting
(x + -0.3) equal to 0.1 and -0.1.

Subproblem 1x + -0.3 = 0.1

Simplifying
x + -0.3 = 0.1

Reorder the terms:
-0.3 + x = 0.1

Solving
-0.3 + x = 0.1

Solving for variable 'x'.

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '0.3' to each side of the equation.
-0.3 + 0.3 + x = 0.1 + 0.3

Combine like terms: -0.3 + 0.3 = 0.0
0.0 + x = 0.1 + 0.3
x = 0.1 + 0.3

Combine like terms: 0.1 + 0.3 = 0.4
x = 0.4

Simplifying
x = 0.4

Subproblem 2x + -0.3 = -0.1

Simplifying
x + -0.3 = -0.1

Reorder the terms:
-0.3 + x = -0.1

Solving
-0.3 + x = -0.1

Solving for variable 'x'.

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '0.3' to each side of the equation.
-0.3 + 0.3 + x = -0.1 + 0.3

Combine like terms: -0.3 + 0.3 = 0.0
0.0 + x = -0.1 + 0.3
x = -0.1 + 0.3

Combine like terms: -0.1 + 0.3 = 0.2
x = 0.2

Simplifying
x = 0.2

SolutionThe solution to the problem is based on the solutions
from the subproblems.
x = {0.4, 0.2}```
