I'm trying to solve 2x^2+11x21 by quadratic formula. Factoring gives 3/2, 7, but by the formula (which should always work), I get: (11/4)+/((22/4)(42)^(1/2)). Can anyone help me spot my stupid error?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factoring gives 3/2, 7, the quadratic formula is x=(b±sqrt(b^24ac))/2a from your equation a=2,b=11,c=21 put values in formula x=(11±sqrt(121(168)))/2x2 x=(11±sqrt(289))/4 x=(11±17)/4. x=3/2, 7

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if factoring this is right (2x3)(x+7)=2x2+11x21 so than your got solutions x=3/2 and x=7 is right,correct sure always

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i am seriously sorry actually this step is likex=(11±sqrt(121(168)))/2x2 new onex=(11±sqrt(121(168)))/2x2 because 'c' is minus
