## AriPotta 2 years ago just to make sure, this is correct, yes? solve 0 = x^2 + 10x + 5

1. AriPotta

first of all can you type out your work...i see you have posted a png but please also post a formula...i see your using the quadratic formula you seem to have a good understanding of it...

3. AriPotta

i don't like typing out my work, i think it's a waste of time :/ can you not read my writing? :c and sorry. yes, i'm using the quadratic formula :]

4. skay

it looks correct to me.

oops...really quickly...answer me on this...you put -5 plus or minus the $2\sqrt{5}$ Which is it...plus...or ...minus...

6. AriPotta

it's plus or minus

7. AriPotta

±

no..one or the other...that is a step in the quadratic formula

9. skay

it solves for two different solutions. when you add it, it gives one, and when you subtract it, it gives another.

oh yes...lord have mercy

11. AriPotta

it's ± D:<

12. skay

No, you can have two different possible solutions, if i remember correctly, just plug in the solutions into the equation and if it equals 0 it is correct

im sorry i knew that...lol HAHA i did this two years ago...and still use it so i should remember it...

skay thank you...i would have really messed him up without you lol

15. AriPotta

my answer is right tho, yes?

16. skay

sure lol. one second ari, let me plug the solutions into it and check

....yes you answer is right..i dont think that technically goes against the code of conduct...checking an answer..lol

18. skay

19. AriPotta

oh :c

no skay its right

21. skay

nvm you got it! its correct

22. AriPotta

oh yey! :3

23. skay

I think i just stared at it too long lol

whats bothering you is the sqrt not finished...it hasnt came to complete end yet...thats what got me i think too...that or stupidity lol

25. skay

yessss. Quadratic problems are da bomb.
