    Re: Algebraic math Equation

    Multiply both sides of the equation by 2m ... you will end up with a quadratic equation.

    Re: Algebraic math Equation

    You should end up with 5m^2-4m-2 = 0. Pick out a, b and c and use the quad formula.

    Learn to use LaTeX coding.

    [TEX]\frac{5m}{2}=2+\frac{1}{m} [/TEX] gives \frac{5m}{2}=2+\frac{1}{m}
    If you click on the “go advanced tab” you should see \boxed{\Sigma} on the tool-bar. That gives the [TEX]..[/TEX] wrap. Your LaTeX code goes between them.

    This subforum will help you with the code. Once you begin, you quickly learn the code.
