i believe they are the same number
it is the answer but why is it 25/4?
it is \[\frac{25}{4}\] because \[(\frac{5}{2})^2=\frac{25}{4}\]
ohhhhh
and it is \[\frac{5}{2}\] because you started with \[x^2-5x+k\]
ohh, i get it now thank you!
Okay so here's what I did: \[p ^{2} - 5p + k =0\] coefficient of p = -5 coefficient of p / 2 = -5/2 (coefficient of p/2)^2 = (-5/2)^2 = 25.4 \[p ^{2} - 5p + 25/4 = -k + \left(\begin{matrix}25 \\ 4\end{matrix}\right)\]
= \[(p - 5/2)^{2} = -25/4\] = \[p - 5/2 = +- (\sqrt{25}/\sqrt{4}\]
p = -5/3 +- 5/2 Help!
