# Chapter 8 - Section 8.1 - Solving Quadratic Equations by Completing the Square - Exercise Set: 20

p=±2i$\sqrt 3$

#### Work Step by Step

Original Equation 3p²+36=0 Subtract 36 from both sides 3p²=-36 Divide both sides by 3 p²=-12 Take the square root of both sides p=±$\sqrt -12$ Simplify the radical p=±2i$\sqrt 3$
