    Hi tinyone,

    It would appear that 1+\sqrt{3} is the constant term of the quadratic.

    I also assume you are to set the quadratic expression equal to 0 and solve for t.

    If this is equal to 0 then use the quadratic formula. \sqrt{3} is a constant just like 1 is.

    t^2+t+(1+\sqrt{3})

    a = 1
    b = 1
    c = 1+sqrt(3)
