# What is the quadratic formula of 3x² + 10x – 2 = 0?

Oct 24, 2015

x= -10 + or - sqrt((10^2 -4 (3)(-2))/ (2 (3))

#### Explanation:

I'm assuming you want to know what the quadratic formula would look like for this particular equation. The quadratic formula is$x = - b \pm \sqrt{\frac{{b}^{2} - 4 a c}{2 a}}$.
If the discriminant (${b}^{2} - 4 a c$) is greater than zero, there will be two solutions: -b + everything inside the radical and -b - everything inside of the radical.
In this equation:
a (the coefficient of the squared term)= 3
b (the coefficient of the linear term)= 10
c (the constant)= -2
