##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

We know the Quadratic Formula:

If

then,

**Comparing ,** **with quad.equn** ,we get

**First we find #triangle#**

So,

#### Explanation:

Your equation is already in quadratic form, so all we have to do is substitute. The quadratic form is as follows:

Your equation looks like this:

What we are trying to do is **find the values** of **same spot** in your equation as they are in the quadratic form.

Now plug these in to the quadratic formula:

Now solve by doing addition alone and subtraction alone to get your two values:

So the solution is
