    if A = 3 and B = 6 and C = 2 and we plug it into the formula \[\frac{ 6\pm \sqrt{6^{2}-4*3*2} }{ 2*3 }\]

    @Lily2913 It's very nice of you to help, and I don't know who the "last" person is. The best way to "help" is to give confidence to the asker and give him/her a chance to practise and get familiar with the type of problems. It would help better if the actual is given so the asker can apply it to a different problem. So given a=3, b=-6, c=2, and the quadratic formula: \(\Large x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}\) is probably what you intended to show the asker.

    It's the 3rd or 4th question he's asked regarding quadratics, and I have shown him the formula in a past question(s)... But I do see what you mean though.
