    1st Post. Yippeee

    Just a basic algebra eqn. First one to post up the correct solution gets this imaginary check for 1 million dollars.

    2x^2 + 15x + 14 = 0

    Give it a go.

    this doesn't factor nicely. use the quadratic formula.

    the roots of a quadratic of the form y = ax^2 + bx + c are given by:

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

    show me the money!!!

    EDIT: just in case you haven't heard the phrase before, by "roots" i mean the solutions to ax^2 + bx + c = 0
