# Thread: Finding the zeros of large terms

1. ## Finding the zeros of large terms

I was wondering if there are easier ways or ways to break down large quadratics such as:

$
3x^2 + 740x + 1000
$

I can't manipulate the window on my calculator to see the graph.

....
You factor out the leading coefficient. But 740/3 and 1000/3 are still sketchy.
Can I divide 1000, 740 and 3 by 10 and get somewhere with it?

2. ## the graph

assumming this =y

if you want to see the graph

if this expression is =x
$x = \frac{-740\pm\sqrt{740^2-(4)(3)(1000)}}{2(3)}
