Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a quadratic equation, and doesn't look factorable at first glance. Quadratic formula is your best option.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think you use the quadratic formula. Am I correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Quadratic formula always works, so is typically the weapon of choice in this situation. A good way to start though, is to multiply everything by 2 first to clear the fraction.
