i need help to find out what i need to do to solve this problem
Question :Positive root of the following equation:
34*x^2 + 68*x  510
Recall:
a*x^2 + b*x + c
x1 = (  b + sqrt ( b*b  4*a*c ) ) / ( 2*a)
I tried this on my python shell but getting an error and i think m entering something wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't forget to do this: from math import * because if you don't, you'll have to do math.sqrt(....), if you just use sqrt without that line, python thinks that you are using your own definition called sqrt.
