To find the roots of a polynomial of the form $ax^2+bx+c$ we use the quadratic formula, where in this case $a=1$, $b=-8$ and $c=-1008$. Then substitute the values of the coefficients of the equation in the quadratic formula: $\displaystyle x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

To obtain the two solutions, divide the equation in two equations, one when $\pm$ is positive ($+$), and another when $\pm$ is negative ($-$)

$x=\frac{8+\pm 64}{2}$

Learn how to solve quadratic equations problems step by step online. Solve the quadratic equation x^2-8x-1008=0. To find the roots of a polynomial of the form ax^2+bx+c we use the quadratic formula, where in this case a=1, b=-8 and c=-1008. Then substitute the values of the coefficients of the equation in the quadratic formula: \displaystyle x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}. To obtain the two solutions, divide the equation in two equations, one when \pm is positive (+), and another when \pm is negative (-). Subtract the values 8 and -64. Add the values 8 and 64.
