Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not yet, The questions I got was from the book on the chapter of Quadratic equations, and it said it required Higherorder thinking skills...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Vieta's Theorem is not so hard to get. I advice you to get it and try to use for your task.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not so sure my teacher wants me to apply Vieta's Theorem yet, because she hates it when we move on ahead of her teachings...btw she can't teach =_=

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If you want to factor \(x^2+kx19\), I hope you will think it will be \((xa)(xb)\). So, when expanding: \(x^2(a+b)x+ab\). Now just look at the coefficients. \(k=(a+b), 19=ab\). You want only integers. From the second equality it will be only \(a=1,b=19\) or \(a=19,b=1\), because 19 is a prime number. Now try to find \(k\) in both cases.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If \((a+b)=8\), so \(a+b=8\). And \(ab=k\), we get \(a(8a)=k>0\). It will be if \(a^2+8a>0\).dw:1357824979524:dw Answer: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The answer will be if you put all this numbers: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 in the expression for \(k=a(8a)\) instead of \(a\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1How did you get that this will be all the possible values for \(k\), that you've written k = {0, 7, 12, 15, 16}? \(k=0\) doesn't suit.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(k>0\) in the statement.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I can't be absolutely sure that this will be ALL the values for \(k\) by just guessing its value.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The source of our misunderstanding is my bad English. Sometimes I can't get what is spoken about.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You say that it is no need in writing \(k=a(8a), a=1,2,\ldots ,7\). Because it will have the same value for \(a=1\) and \(a=7\). I just showed the way I had solved this task. Sorry.
