Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Quadratic formula... a=5 b=3 c=9 Plug them in and you'll get two answers for x. Both yvalues will be 0.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(3 +/ (sqrt(9+180))/10 (3+/ sqrt(189))/10 ***THIS MEANS*** x = (3+ sqrt(189))/10 y=0 x = (3sqrt(189))/10 y=0 Is this making sense?
