Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the formula for the quadratic equation, but I wasn't 100% sure cause B is a negative. So it really should look like (5) not 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0My mom thought it was B, because once you simplify (5), it becomes positive. But I know that you simplify the radicand before you do anything else, so I wasn't sure if it was A or B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a = 2, b = 5, c = 18 take the opposite of the value of b to go from 5 to +5 so choice B is the only one that fits that has +5 as the first thing in the numerator
