To solve the quadratic equation (-5x^2 + 12x - 8 = 0) using the quadratic formula, (x = \frac{{-b \pm \sqrt{{b^2 - 4ac}}}}{{2a}}), where (a = -5), (b = 12), and (c = -8):

[x = \frac{{-12 \pm \sqrt{{12^2 - 4(-5)(-8)}}}}{{2(-5)}}]

[x = \frac{{-12 \pm \sqrt{{144 - 160}}}}{{-10}}]

[x = \frac{{-12 \pm \sqrt{{-16}}}}{{-10}}]

[x = \frac{{-12 \pm 4i}}{{-10}}]

[x = \frac{{-6 \pm 2i}}{{-5}}]

So the solutions are (x = \frac{{-6 + 2i}}{{-5}}) and (x = \frac{{-6 - 2i}}{{-5}}).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
