Two candidates attempt to solve a quadratic equation of the form x2 + px + q = 0. One starts with a wrong value of p and finds the roots to be 2 and 6. The other starts with a wrong value of q and finds the roots to be 2 and – 9. Find the correct roots of the equation :
Solve for x : 15x2 – 7x – 36 = 0
Solve for y : (√7) y2 – 6y –13 (√7) = 0
Using mid term splitting
So either y=13/
Solve for x : 6x2 + 40 = 31x
