Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0rewrite it in the normal form and plug into the quadratic equation: \[ax^2 + bx + c = 0 \implies x = \frac{(b) \pm \sqrt{(b)^24(a)(c)}}{2(a)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thank you i did that part but where i am getting cofused at is that addition/ subtraction sign i dont kno what to do with it sorry i didnt say that earlier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, well unless the part under the square root is 0 you will get 2 different possible solutions. \[x = \frac{(b) + \sqrt{(b)^24(a)(c)}}{2(a)}\] and \[x = \frac{(b)  \sqrt{(b)^24(a)(c)}}{2(a)}\] The \(\pm\) thing just makes it easier to write.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then instead of that i subtracted 5 then i divided by 12 and i got 10.5
