Solve the quadratic:

x^{2}+x-30

a = 1, b = 1, c = -30

x = | -b ± √b^{2} - 4ac |

2a |

-b = -(1)

-b = -1

Δ = b^{2} - 4ac:

Δ = 1^{2} - 4 x 1 x -30

Δ = 1 - -120

Δ = 121 <--- Discriminant

Since Δ > 0, we expect two real roots.

√Δ = √(121)

√Δ = 11

Numerator 1 = -b + √Δ

Numerator 1 = -1 + 11

Numerator 1 = 10

Numerator 2 = -b - √Δ

Numerator 2 = -1 - 11

Numerator 2 = -12

Denominator = 2 * a

Denominator = 2 * 1

Denominator = 2

Solution 1 = | Numerator 1 |

Denominator |

Solution 1 = | 10 |

2 |

Solution 1 = 5

Solution 2 = | Numerator 2 |

Denominator |

Solution 2 = | -12 |

2 |

Solution 2 = -6

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (5, -6)

(5)^{2} + 1(5) - 30 ? 0

(25) + 530 ? 0

25 + 530 ? 0

0 = 0

(-6)^{2} + 1(-6) - 30 ? 0

(36) - 630 ? 0

36 - 630 ? 0

0 = 0

(Solution 1, Solution 2) = (5, -6)
