Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bro you got like 4x^2 +10  1 = 0 you cant factor so you gotta quadratic forumal that b (plus or minus) Root(b^24AC) all divided by 2A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The equation becomes: 4x^2+10x+1=0 You need to use the quadratic formula which is: x=[b+/square root(b^24ac)]/2a a=4 b=10 c=1 x=[10+/square root(10^24(4)(1)]/2(4) x=[10+/square root(10016)]/8 x=[10+/square root(84)]/8 x=[10+/square root(4)*(21)]/8 x=[10+/2(square root 21)/8 You can reduce 10, 2 and 8 since each is divisible by 2 and you get: x=[5+/(square root 21)]/4=(5+square root 21)/4 and (5square root 21)/4
