Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Step 1, coefficience of X= -8

Step 2, divide coefficience by 2 =-4

Step 3, Square the answer= 16

step 4, Add to both sides of the equation

s^2-8x+16=4+16

s^2+16=20

s^2+4^2=20

(s+4)^2=20

take the squre root of both sides

s+4=sqrt(20)

s=4+or -sqrt20

s=4+4.5 or 4-4.5

s=8.5 or 0.5

rounding up we have

s=10 or 1(to the nearest ten0)
