    Hii... problem with some quadratics excersises.. Can someone help me?? :D

    Hii... I need help with some of this excersises...

    1) Solve 3x2^ + 4x = 2
    2) Solve x^2 + 9x + 9 = 0
    3) Solve 2x^2 = 14x + 20

    butt the answer cannot be like x= something and x= something else... it must be like ... or i don't know... Please help because I don't know how to do that.. thanks...!

    1. Re-write the equations to the form

    ax^2+bx+c = 0

    2. Then use the quadratic formula:

    x = \dfrac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}

    For example the first one:
    3x^2+4x=2  \Leftrightarrow 3x^2+4x-2=0

    Now like earboth said you've to use the quadratic formula.

    I know that part... but how do I use the formula... and how do I simplify the formula when I subst. the numbers.... I don't understand that part.. :$

    Re: Hii... problem with some quadratics excersises.. Can someone help me?? :D

    Ok, now you have to calculate:
    D=b^2-4ac
    In this case:
    D=4^2-[4\cdot3\cdot(-2)]=40

    Using the quadratic formula, you'll get two different solutions because D>0:
    x_1=\frac{-b+\sqrt{D}}{2a}=...
    x_2=\frac{-b-\sqrt{D}}{2a}=...

    Can you complete? ...

    You don't have to be sorry everyone is here to learn ...

    Ok, you just have to fill in:
    x_1=\frac{-4+\sqrt{40}}{6}
    x_2=\frac{-4-\sqrt{40}}{6}

    These are the two solutions of the quadratic equation.

    Try it now for the other equations ...

    Re: Hii... problem with some quadratics excersises.. Can someone help me?? :D

    Almost, if you want to simplify it has to be:
    \frac{-4+\sqrt{40}}{6}=\frac{-4+\sqrt{4\cdot 10}}{6}=\frac{-2-\sqrt{10}}{3}

    Yes, to simplify is important, but I didn't do it yet so you could clearly see the solution.

    Do you understand now? ...

    This is exactly the same as the thread you posted yesterday. If you honestly have no idea how to solve quadratic equations and, apparently, cannot understand what people are saying here, you need to talk to your teacher about this.
