Enter Quadratic equation/inequality below

Hint Number =

Solve the quadratic:

w2+5w-546 = 0

Set up the a, b, and c values:

a = 1, b = 5, c = -546

Quadratic Formula

w  =  -b ± √b2 - 4ac
  2a

Calculate -b

-b = -(5)

-b = -5

Calculate the discriminant Δ

Δ = b2 - 4ac:

Δ = 52 - 4 x 1 x -546

Δ = 25 - -2184

Δ = 2209 <--- Discriminant

Since Δ > 0, we expect two real roots.

Take the square root of Δ

Δ = √(2209)

Δ = 47

-b + Δ:

Numerator 1 = -b + √Δ

Numerator 1 = -5 + 47

Numerator 1 = 42

-b - Δ:

Numerator 2 = -b - √Δ

Numerator 2 = -5 - 47

Numerator 2 = -52

Calculate 2a

Denominator = 2 * a

Denominator = 2 * 1

Denominator = 2

Find Solutions

Solution 1  =  Numerator 1
  Denominator

Solution 1  =  42
  2

Solution 1 = 21

Solution 2

Solution 2  =  Numerator 2
  Denominator

Solution 2  =  -52
  2

Solution 2 = -26

Solution Set

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (21, -26)


Prove our first answer

(21)2 + 5(21) - 546 ? 0

(441) + 105546 ? 0

441 + 105546 ? 0

0 = 0

Prove our second answer

(-26)2 + 5(-26) - 546 ? 0

(676) - 130546 ? 0

676 - 130546 ? 0

0 = 0

Final Answer

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (21, -26)





What is the Answer?
(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (21, -26)
