Values of X??

There is no X in your problem.

I know, that's what the question asked, but I think that they mean the value for p.

• Math Algebra - ,

We can't guess what "they" meant. There is no answer to this question.

• Math Algebra - ,

if they did mean p, i think it is just quadratics or something. have a look in your textbook for quadratics.

Ive forgotten the right way to do it, sorry.

• Math Algebra - ,

Use the quadratic formula to solve for the variable, p.
I would use google or another search engine to find the formula so you can plug all the numbers in correctly.

• Math Algebra - ,

a+/- sqrt[(b^2-4ac)/2a]

solve for p.

• Math Algebra - ,

correction:

p= -b+/- sqrt[(b^2-4ac)/2a]

NOW you can solve for p.
