Question #28114

2x(2) - 3x - 5 = 0

Expert's answer

2x^2 - 3x - 5 = 0

We're dealing with a quadratic equation. Let's find its discriminant:

D=9+4*5*2=49>0 therefore given quadratic equation has two distinct real roots. They are

x1,2=(3+-sqrt(D))/4=(3+-7)/4

x1=10/4-5/2, x2=-1

So the answer is x=5/2; x=-1.
