Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont think you can use the quadratic formula in this case, as we have ve power in this case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[12t^217t^{1}5=0\]This one won't factor that well. The problem is probably\[12t^217t5=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If it is, you can use the acmethod to factor it. Do you know how to do that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The quadratic formula only works on quadratic equations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there must have been a mistake with this problem. anyways, the equation can be reduced to cubic form.the equation has a sign change between 1 and 2. so it must have a root between these two numbers. i found it to be 1.246. the other two roots can be found by reducing this cubic equation into quadratic equation and they come out to be imaginary.
