Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay and you already know the quadratic formula. \(x=\frac{b\pm\sqrt{b^24ac}}{2a}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 6 \pm \sqrt{6^2  20} }{ 2}\] This would be a simpler form of the formula given the terms. I just eliminated the a = 1 and added the 4(5).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The problem being, when I solve, I get 4.75 and 1.25, which if you look at the answers above, these are not it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay, first off, how did you get 3.5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(6^2=36\) so you would take \(\large\sqrt{3620}\). What is 3620?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 6 \pm \sqrt{36  20}}{ 2} = \frac{ 6 \pm \sqrt{12} }{ 2 }\] \[\sqrt{12} = 3.5\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23620 does not equal 12. double check your math there

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you forgot something. \(\large\sqrt{16}=?\)

BloomLocke367

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2because you have \(\LARGE \frac{6\pm\sqrt{16}}{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right. Even if you take 4 \[\frac{ 6 \pm 4 }{ 2 } = 2/2 = 1 \space or 5\]
