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

The + part always confuses me. Could you demonstrate how I'd substitute an equation like this into the form?

\[ x = \frac{b \pm \sqrt{b^24ac}}{2a} \text{ means:} \\ \quad x_1 = \frac{b + \sqrt{b^2  4ac}}{2a} \text{, and} \\ \quad x_2 = \frac{b  \sqrt{b^2  4ac}}{2a} \text{ are the two solutions} \] Basically, its a more compact way of writing both solutions. The typical method is to substitute your values, simplify your sqrt(b^2  4ac) and b, and then deal with splitting the \(\pm\) into two solutions + and .
