1. ## 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.

2. your first post??! Yeeaaaaayyy!!!!

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 $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$

3. Thanks. Here you go
