Can you simplify this further?
*Using the quadratic formula to factor x^26x4*
The answer is supposed to be 6(+)√53 / 2 ,but can't you simplify by 2? 6 and 2 go into 2.
Then could it be 3(+)√68/1
or no?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait how is it simplified? in another problem there was a problem where you divided by 3 because it was a common factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no you cannot because the number inside the radical contains no perfect squares. this is the best you can do

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for \[9x^29x+6=0\] you can start with \[3x^2+3x2=0\] and reduce before you start

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{9\pm3\sqrt{33}}{18}=\] you can simplify this since \[\frac{3(3\pm\sqrt{33})}{6\cdot3}=\] \[\frac{1(3\pm\sqrt{33})}{6\cdot1}=\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[x^26x4=0\] \[x^26x=4\] \[(x3)^2=4+9=13\] \[x3=\pm\sqrt{13}\] \[x=3\pm\sqrt{13}\]
