    simple quadratic equation question

    If I want to solve for "q" will the quadratic equation apply to the following equation?

    q^2k^2\pi^2z+q(2\pi^2k^2z-20\pi kz^2+z^3)-104+\frac{20\pi k}{z}+\frac{\pi^2 k^2}{z^2}=0


    And what about if q contains k? I.e. q=3\left(\frac{1-k}{1+k}\right)^2

    Would it still work?

    There's no reason why not. And it can contain k if it likes, it can contain anything you want, I'm fairly sure.

    You'll probably get something fearsomely unwieldy, but that's what makes this sort of mental gymnastics such fun.
