The roots of a quadratic equation are x=(7+ or - sqroot3)/2 Determine the quadratic equation in simplest general form ax^2+bx+c=0; a can't equal zero,abc are intergers.
I have no clue what to do help please!
Hello,
You have the two roots of the equation.
The most direct way is to plug in the equation the values of the roots to solve for a, b and c..
Another way consists in remembering that if m and n are the roots of the trinomial, then m+n=b and mn=c
Another way again is to know that if m and n are the roots of a trinomial, then it's equal to (x-m)(x-n)
