- The first step with a quadratic equation is to make it equal to
- The second step is to factorise if possible.
- The third step is to set each factor equal to
#0#and solve it.
4, and 6
Use the new Transforming Method (Google Search), when a = 1.
Find 2 real roots, that have same sign (ac > 0), knowing the sum (-b = 10) and the product (c = 24). They are 4 and 6.
Answers: 4 and 6.
NOTE. No need to go further in factoring by grouping and solving the 2 binomials.
