Ah, right. But the problem is, coefficients of your equation are quite impressive, why not take smaller numbers so as to get a smaller quadratic equation, easy to understand and factorize mentally (without quadratic formula) for those young people ? Something like ? You know, the product and sum of roots : , but , thus
Hi Mukilab!

Hello gtekriwal, nice to see it's your first post, and although I am quite a new member, Welcome!
No problem, although I hope you don't mind my caution. I'll hand it in to my maths teacher before I email it to you. Is it OK if I mention this blog to them?
Oh and I'll definitely be hoping to study all the sutras, I only know about half. Hopefully in time my knowledge will gradually expand and I'll learn these much simpler methods. Unfortunately, knowledge comes hand in hand with practice which I have learned in studying vertically by crosswise. It gets fairly confusing with the three digits in your head.
Nice forum by the way! Hope it prospers
