    Please help on quadradics

    3x+3/4-2(x-5)=30


    (2X*2X)-12X+9=0 USE FACTORISATION

    (3X*3X)+13X+2=0 STATE ANSWER TO THREE SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS

    X/8+3X/16=5/X

    (X*X)-2X-6=0

    1)
    \begin{array}{l}<br />
 3x + \frac{3}{4} - 2(x - 5) = 30 \\ <br />
 3x + \frac{3}{4} - 2x + 10 = 30 \\ <br />
 x = 20 - \frac{3}{4} \\ <br />
 x = \frac{{77}}{4} \\ <br />
 \end{array}<br />

    2)
    \begin{array}{l}<br />
 (2x*2x) - 12x + 9 = 0 \\ <br />
 4x^2  - 12x + 9 = 0 \\ <br />
 (2x - 3)^2  = 0 \\ <br />
  \\ <br />
 2x - 3 = 0 \\ <br />
 2x = 3 \\ <br />
 x = \frac{3}{2} \\ <br />
 \end{array}<br />

    3)
    \begin{array}{l}<br />
 (3x*3x) + 13x + 2 = 0 \\ <br />
 9x^2  + 13x + 2 = 0 \\ <br />
 x_{1/2}  = \frac{{ - 13 \pm \sqrt {97} }}{{18}} \\ <br />
 \end{array}<br />

    4)
    \begin{array}{l}<br />
 \frac{x}{8} + \frac{{3x}}{{16}} = \frac{5}{x} \\ <br />
 \frac{{2x + 3x}}{{16}} = \frac{5}{x} \\ <br />
 \frac{{5x}}{{16}} = \frac{5}{x} \\ <br />
 5x^2  = 80 \\ <br />
 x^2  = 16 \\ <br />
 x = \sqrt {16}  \\ <br />
 x = 4 \\ <br />
 \end{array}<br />

    5)
    \begin{array}{l}<br />
 (x*x) - 2x - 6 = 0 \\ <br />
 x^2  - 2x - 6 = 0 \\ <br />
 x_{1/2}  = \frac{{2 \pm \sqrt {4 + 24} }}{2} = \frac{{2 \pm \sqrt {28} }}{2} \\ <br />
 \end{array}<br />

    I didn't calculate 3) and 5), hopefully you can do that.
