3y^2 + 4y - 2 ≥ 0

3y^2 + 4y - 2 = 0

y = [-4 ± sqrt (4^2 - 4(3)(-2)]/(2 • 3) = (-4 ± sqrt 40)/6 = (-4 ± 2 rad 10)/6 = (-2 ± rad 10)/3

Is this right?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 31, 2009 at 1:41pmyou have solved the "equation" but you were dealing with an inequation.

the values of (-2 ± √10)/3 are the intercepts on a y-number line.

so the solution would be

y ≤ (-2 - √10)/3 OR y ≥ (-2 + √10)/3

too bad it did not factor, it would have been easier to see.
