ok i'll give a hint but wont intervene and give it flat out
b and c are zero
@Makayla43 Time for you to try. What is the coefficient of x^2?
b^2 - 4ac|dw:1340769023413:dw|
Too many hints already...
I'm inclined to agree.
Omg. Forget this. I don't understand it and none of ya'll are helping. Bye.
It's due tomorrow so I'm screwed.
You should tell us what you don't understand so that we can help.
Can you evaluate what timo gave you?
Okay, let's start from the beginning. You may take coefficient of a term as the number before the term. For example coefficient of x in the term 8x is 8. Now, in your question, the term is 2x^2. Can you identify the coefficient of x^2?
By the way, it's b^2 - 4ac, not b^2 - 4ab
Do you understand the example?
I typed it wrong.
No I do not.
Which part you don't understand?
The coefficient is the constant multiple
constants are numbers that don't change
8x 8 is a constant x is a variable and actually 8 here is a constant multiple and is therefore the coefficient of x
8 here is called a constant multiple because it is being multiply by that variable
So in 2x^2 What is the coefficient of x^2?
@Makayla43 are you still here?
I wonder how you can respond when you're not here.... Back to the question, after @freckles 's detailed and clear explanation, which part you still don't understand?
the i don't wanna study lol
