Compare your quadratic equation with \(ax^2+bx+c=0\) find a,b,c then the two roots of x are: \(\huge{x=\frac{b \pm \sqrt{b^24ac}}{2a}}\)

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so two other values of x are ?
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
one obviously is x=6

mskyeg Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
what about the other two
 2 years ago

hartnn Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats what u have u work out using \(\huge{x=\frac{b \pm \sqrt{b^24ac}}{2a}}\) u have a,b,c values correct.
