    when given a set of roots: {r1,r2,r3,...,rn} you can set up a poly by subtracting x from each root: (r1-x)(r2-x)(r3-x)...(rn-x)

    @dan815 2 roots, this is a quadratic, so \(x= 3\pm\sqrt{3}\)

    or \[x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\] \[x=\frac{3\pm\sqrt{3}}{1}\] a = 1/2 b = -3 9-4c = 3 c = 6/4 \[\frac12x^2-3x+\frac64\] \[2x^2-12x+6\]

    9-4c/2 = 3 9-2c = 3 c = 3

    1/2 x^2 -3x +3 x^2 -6x + 6 sounds better
