Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m^249/2m1/2=0, so a=1 b=49/2 c=1/2, to be used in the quadratic formula of b+ square root of b^24ac/2a.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0m^249/2m=1/2 (m49/4)^2(49/4)^2=1/2 This should be the first step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@andras, I get m^249/2m+2401/16, the 2401/16 in the rules for completing a square is take the coefficient of the second term divide by 2, then square it and add it to the end as the third term and also add it to the other side. So, 1/2 x 49/2= 49/4 ^2=2401/16. This is what I came up with after doing that (m^249/4)^2=2409/16?
