1. ## [SOLVED] Quadratic equation

Solve the following quadratic equation:
$(x^2-4x)^2 -26(x^2-4x)+105=0$
It *should* be solved using new variable, but I can't figure it out for x^3.

$({\color{red}x^2-4x})^2 -26({\color{red}x^2-4x})+105=0$

So if you substitute $y={\color{red}x^2-4x}$, you'll have ... ?

3. ## Sorry...

Yes, of course.

Be aware though, I'll get to you with some other fuzzy quadratic.
