    so i know that a quadratic equation is x^2+x(sum of roots)+product of roots and you can have \(\large x^2+\frac{b}{a}+\frac{c}{a} \) where from the negative with respect to the middle term....?

    \(\(\huge{x_1=\frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\\\(\huge{x_2=\frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\)\)\) find x1+x2 and x1.x2

    \[\huge{\frac{-b + \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}+\frac{-b - \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\]take the denominator common\[\LARGE{\frac{(-b+\sqrt{b^2-4ac})+(-b-\sqrt{b^2-4ac})}{2a}}\]

    for product, u'll need this : \(\huge \color{red}{(a+b)(a-b)=a^2-b^2}\)
