how is k solved when 4x^2 + kx + 6 = 0...
i really get so hard to solve when there is already k in the equation.
kindly help me.
Thanks a lot so much.
this one is not so bad.
if we use the idea of comparing coefficients as has been shown you can think like this.
now you have all positive terms. the coefficients are 4 and 6. which factor to and . so you have 2 factors of each coeffient just like the general form. now just substitute all the inormation into the general factors.
now that you know k solve your linear equations to find the roots.
here is a extra think...
to check k I do this.
2 real roots.
now if we do like before we get this.
now we check with k and decimals.
the inequalities is only telling you what value k is greater then or less then not k itself.
for quadratic equations this is true. all partial products of factors.
and we have the rule in this case a and c only have 2 factors each so they fall nicely into the LHS but you could use the same method for any ac coefficients that factor.
