Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04x^2 +x 2 = 0 1/8 + sqrt(33)/8 should be the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00 = 4x^2 +x 2 is alot easier to play with :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0get your quad to be a positive 4x^2..... you can put that stuff on either side of the equals sign to make life easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far I have \[10 + or  \sqrt{4}\over 2\] So i'm wondering if the 2 and 4 turn into 2 over 1...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we want to really work this with the quad formula then we should get: 10/2 + sqrt(100 (4)(25))/2 10/2 + sqrt(100100)/2 < thats zero 10/2 = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh i did 10096 to get that. i wrote 24 instead of 25..My bad. So is there only 1 solution for this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, only one solution. It touches the x axis in only one place....x = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have like 10 more of these so i'll probably keep posting them on here to make sure I get them right. So if you don't mind I will just stay on this window and show them to you, otherwise I can see if others want to help. It's up to you! I understand if you have better things to do :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0better things? no, but I might not be able to get to them, so post them in the left side so others can have a chance at them :)
