^2 stands for squared
16x^2+ 24xy + 9y^2 - 10x-5y=0
Hi there. It's going to be my finals in about 4 hours and while reviewing, I came across the equation above. I spent 2 hours trying to crack it but I just can't seem to get anywhere with the method my professor taught me. Can anyone give me a very detailed step by step on this one. Oh and if its not too much can anyone give me a similar equation example. Thanks
By the way the final answer on the equation above is
25x'^2 - 11x' + 2y' =0.
I need to know how its derived.
