do it by factorizing...
hint : split the middle term as 8x-3x
break 5x in two terms.

8x-3x
would it be −b±/b^2 - 4ac ------------- 2a
thats using Quadratic formula...are u asked to use that ? if not factorizing will be better approach
ya its asking for quadratic formula
Compare your quadratic equation with \(ax^2+bx+c=0\) find a,b,c then the two roots of x are: \(\huge{x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\)
so, first tell me what u get for a,b,c.
a=x^2 b=5 c=24
no, 'a' is the co-efficient of x^2 here u have 1x^2 so a=.... ?
1^2
|dw:1356626845466:dw|
a=1 b=5 c=24
are u sure about the value of 'c' ?
-24
correct, now just plug in the values of a,b,c in that quadratic formula
−b±/b^2 - 4ac ------------- 2a -5 +/5^2 - 4 * 1 * 24 ------------------ 2 -5 +/ 25 - 96 ----------- 2
-5 -/5^2 - 4 * 1 * 24 ------------------ 2 -5 -/ 25 - 96 ----------- 2
remember that c=-24 so \(b^2-4ac = 25-4(1)(-24) = 25+96=...?\)
i cant believe i keep messing that up
everything else was correct.
121
yes, and \(\sqrt{121}=..?\)
11 SR
-5 + 11= 6 -- = 3 2
yes, and (-5-11)/2 =... ?
?
-8
thats correct, so 2 roots are 3 and -8.
ok thank u for all ur help
welcome ^_^
