@completeidiot so far for number 1, I got \[2x + 13 = 5x ^{2}\]

you screwed up somewhere please show me steps

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Oh I think I get what I did wrong. I times 5 with x instead of adding it so it would be \[2x + 10 = (x + 5)^{2}\] Right?

2x10 = (x+5)^2 2x10 = x^2 + 10x + 25 0 = x^2 + 8x + 35

Okay, but how would you find the solution of the equation? @syhna

Completing the Square Factoring Quadratic Formula your pick

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, I'll use the Quadratic Formula so A = 1, B = 10 and C = 25 correct?
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no, look at syhna's steps
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Ohh sorry I was looking at the wrong one. A = 1 B = 8 and C = 35

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, I get number 1 now, what about number 2 ?
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i suggest factoring, for the practice
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I'm not good at factoring at all, so that's why I am stuck
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
actually, yes use quadratic formula cause i dont think you can factor it

can #2 be subtracted ? i dont honestly get it

@completeidiot I'm not sure how to identify a, b, and c in the equation \[3\sqrt[3]{2a}  6\sqrt[3]{2a}\]

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
oh for number 2 i said use distribution property of multiplication but in reverse
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
essentially the same as factoring

That's what I was asking lol. What do yu mean in reverse?
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
a(b+c)= ab+ac in reverse would be pulling something out de+df=d(e+f)

Couldn't I cancel out 2a or no
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
can this be \[\sqrt[3]{2a} = 2a ^{3}\] ?
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
It would actually be \[2a ^{1/3}\]
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no it would be 1/3 not 3 and you're missing a parenthesis
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
a i see complete _ what you said a while ago about the reverse factoring then the prob should be equated to 0?
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
For the equation that you gave me @completeidiot de + df = d(e + f), would d be 2a ?
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so cube of a times (3 6) ????
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
@syhna How did you get that? Did you just substitute them into the equation completeidiot gave us?
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
the two terms had cuberoot of a

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Oh so the answer for #2 is what you got?
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so it is 3(cube of 2a)? i think its just the same if we subtracted it
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yeah, that's what I was thinking that if I had subtracted it I would of got what you came up with because at first I subtracted it and came up with that but wasn't sure if it was right

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay, last question, what would I do for #3 ?

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
you're allowed to have improper fractions as exponents

thats a general rule of thumbs

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
think of it as x^1

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
now replace the 1 with m
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay so it would be \[x ^{m/n} ?\]

The Quadratic formua is \[x = \frac{ b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2}  4ac} }{ 2a }\] right ?
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Okay so I plugged it in nd got \[x = \frac{ 8 \pm \sqrt{76} }{ 2 }\] after simplifying everything
 one year ago

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
in no 1 i dont think im right but i used completing the square and got \[4\pm \sqrt{19}\]
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
its an imaginary answer but its still an answer
 one year ago

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
either that or syhna messed up in his calcualtions
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Wait, so mine was correct ? Or no

completeidiotBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
dunno, didnt actually do any of the problems

syhnaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
35 =x^2 + 8x 35 + 16 = x^2 + 8x + 16 19 = sqrt(x+4) sqrt(19) = x + 4 \[4\pm \sqrt{19}\] = x this is what i did.. dunno where i messed up
 one year ago

angelwings996Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I'm not sure either, but thanks for trying to do the work with me! You were alot of help
