# Math Help - lets play a game called find the zeros

1. ## lets play a game called find the zeros

I need serious help with this. first math problem of the year and I'm lost.

Find all real zeros of the function
y=x^2-7x-30

2. Given $ax^2 + bx + c = 0$ where $a,b,c \in \Re$, the real roots of the equation are:

$x_{1,2} = \frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 -4ac}}{2a}$

Alternatively, for the case where a=1, you can try factorizing the expression by finding a pair of numbers $A$ and $B$ such that $AB = c$ and $A + B = b$; in this case, $AB = -30$ and $A + B = -7$

3. well now i feel stupid, quadratic form. of course
