Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its simply a case of solving 4x + 1 = 0 and 3x  2 = 0 this gives the solution to the quadratic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is a quadratic equation , and I have solved it using the formula for finding roots ax^2bx+c=0 so x=[(b)+/(b^24ac)]/2a What campbell and luis have posted are also completely correct , and infact are straightforward and shortcut method. So it depends what you want, straightforward method , or you have to solve it using the formula ( specifically for your tests or exams )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Thats right uniden , but it depends , if this question comes in objective( choice ) paper then straightforward way is "d best" , but if it comes in some school test , and say its for 5 marks , then method indeed matters.
