If you are trying to take the quadratic formula and solve for , it will be far simpler to take the quadratic from which the formula is derived, and solve that for :
I need help getting the variable b by itself
this is what i have so far but need help finishing it. If you could show step by step instructions that'd be great.
(2a)(2a)
2ax=-b +/- sqrt(b^2-4ac)
+b +b
(2ax+b)^2= +/-sqrt( b^2-4ac)^2
(2ax+b)^2= b^2-4ac
