Your mistake is in your fourth line. Should be -2 +/- 2 sqt(7) on top.

is this what you mean
Then you can factorize and simplify.

For future reference, how do you self-delete things that you wish you hadn't posted. Hasn't happened to me yet, but I'm sure it will.

and to delete a comment you select edit then delete (not sure if that was sarcasm) |
Yep. You're right... I was responding to Bacterius. All you have to do now is factorise out the 2 and cancel and you're done.
thats the answer but i cant see how cancelling out gets that
where did the positive 2 go?

Debsta, I don't know, I have some quickly-posted things I want to clear but can't find the delete command ... I'll have to look in the FAQ.
EDIT : I've seen you can't delete your threads because of various reasons. I guess the same goes for posts ... what if I really want to remove the evidence ? dont worry i really appreciate all the help
Thanks, Realistic. I successfully deleted my earlier comment.
Wasn't sarcasm before - a serious question
BTW your final answer is [1 +/- sqrt(7)]/2.
