The solution of the equation x

^{2}– 2x = 8 is-
**A.**

x = 0 or 2 -
**B.**

x = -2 or 4 -
**C.**

x = 2 -
**D.**

x = -4 -
**E.**

x = 2 or 4

##### Correct Answer: Option B

##### Explanation

x^{2} – 2x = 8 = 8

x^{2} – 2x – 8 = 0

(x^{2} – 4x) + (2x – 8) = 0

When x + 2 = 0

x = -2, when x – 4 = 0

x = 4

-2 or 4
