I am trying to figure out the steps to solve this equation:
(t-5)^2=2t^2-7t-3
I dont even know how to start this.
And I cant seem to find an example in the book.
Thanks,
1. Expand the LHS
2. Collect all terms at the LHS
3. Solve the quadratic equation for t using the quadratic formula.
4. I've got: $\displaystyle x = -\frac32 \pm \frac12 \cdot \sqrt{121}$
