Hi, I'm having a hard time dealing with this problem. It says "If (2m+1)(x^2+1)=(2m+5)x has equal roots, find the value of m"
How do I solve this problem?
Well to start I would distribute those and get:
(Set it equal to 0 since we need to find the roots.
Apply the quadratic equation:
How ever, we need these roots to be equal to m, therefore we set this equation to m:
And from there, solve for m . Hope this helps, Chad.
