Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. so you do not know how to factor quadratic equations at all. Am I right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can take the coefficients (number multipliers) of the gsquared term and the regular term (which are both ten) and multiply them together to get 100. Then list all the ways you can multiply two numbers together to get 100.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then look for one of the pairs that add or subtract to get the middle coefficient: 29 (100 can also come from multiplying two negatives together)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...So once you see that the two factors of 100 that add together to get 29 are 4 and 25, then you rewrite the quadratic as: 10g^2  25g  4g + 10 = 0 And work to factor the left side: 5g(2g  5)  2(2g  5) = 0 ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...then you continue to factor: (2g  5)(5g  2) = 0 and the solution to what makes either parenthetical part equal zero is a solution. The two solutions are solutions to: 2g  5 = 0 and 5g  2 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, personally, I would go into the quadratic formula right away, but that is because I have memorized it, and I am fast at it, while not everybody has or is. Typically it (the QF) is annoying. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quadratic_formula#Quadratic_formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, quadratic formula is sometimes less efficient and less elegant. but for problems with no obvious root, it is the only way
