leading coefficient is one so i would apply *headphone method* find two number if you multiply them you should get product of AC and if you add or subtract them you should get middle term b $\huge\rm Ax^2 +Bx+C=0$

5. anonymous

ok i'll try that

6. anonymous

I"m getting (-2,-3)

7. Nnesha

-2 times -3 = 6 -2 -3 =-5 when you multiply them you should get product of AC which is what in this equation ?

8. anonymous

-2-3

9. Nnesha

nope

10. Nnesha

what is a and c in that equation ?

11. anonymous

C

12. Nnesha

$\bf Ax^2 +Bx+C$ leading coefficient is a and constant term is c
