# PLEASE ANSWER THIS 30 POINTS BRAINLIEST WILL BE GIVEN PICTURE INCLUDED!!

Accepted Solution

A:

The first step is to quickly factor each of the five equations... to do so, find the right factors of the 3rd given number so that they add up in an equal number to the second number... 14 = -7 β’ -2 and -9 = -7 + -2

a^2 - 9a + 14 = 0

(a - 7) (a - 2)

a - 7 = 0, a = 7

a - 2 = 0, a = 2

{2,7}

a^2 + 9a + 14 = 0

(a + 7) (a + 2)

a + 7 = 0, a = -7

a + 2 = 0, a = -2

{-2, -7}

a^2 + 3a - 10 = 0

(a + 5) (a - 2)

a + 5 = 0, a = -5

a - 2 = 0, a = 2

{-5, 2}

a^2 - 5a - 14 = 0

(a - 7) (a + 2)

a - 7 = 0, a = 7

a + 2 = 0, a = -2

{-2, 7}

a^2 - 9a + 14 = 0

(a - 7) (a - 2)

a - 7 = 0, a = 7

a - 2 = 0, a = 2

{2,7}

a^2 + 9a + 14 = 0

(a + 7) (a + 2)

a + 7 = 0, a = -7

a + 2 = 0, a = -2

{-2, -7}

a^2 + 3a - 10 = 0

(a + 5) (a - 2)

a + 5 = 0, a = -5

a - 2 = 0, a = 2

{-5, 2}

a^2 - 5a - 14 = 0

(a - 7) (a + 2)

a - 7 = 0, a = 7

a + 2 = 0, a = -2

{-2, 7}
