Equating [1] and [2], we have: .

Multiply (a) and (b): .

Multiply (b) and (c): .

Multiply (a) and (c): .

Square (f): .

Multiply (e) and (d):. .

Therefore, (g) = (h): .

What are the curly brackets? How did you know that a=c1, b= b1, c=a1 for sure?

This reminds me of a similar question: If p and q are rhe roots of ax^2+bx+c=0 find the equation whose roots are 1/p and 1/q

We have p+q=-b/a and pq=c/a So 1/p+1/q=(q+p)/pq=(-b/a)/(c/a)=-b/c and (1/p)*(1/q)=1/pq=a/c

So required equation is x^2+(b/c)x+(a/c)=0 That is cx^2+bx+a=0 - July 1st 2012, 05:01 AMswordfish774Re: relationship between coefficients of a quadratic equations
