# Thread: Finding Solutions for Variable A and B

1. ## Finding Solutions for Variable A and B

The equation 2x^2+17x+3=0 has two solutions A and B where AB

I'm not sure how to go about it being unable to factor it.

2. Use the formula for the quadratic roots:

$\Delta=b^2-4ac$ where $a=2, \ b=17, \ c=3$

and $x_{1,2}=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{\Delta}}{2a}$
