the teacher told us how but didnt show us

plz help

6n^2 - 19n + 15 = 0

factors to

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

so 3x-5 = 0 or 2x-3 = 0

x = 5/3 or x = 3/2

6n^2-19n+15=0

to solve this we can either factor it (if it's factorable) or use quadratic formula,, here we just use quadratic formula:

for a given quadratic equation, ax^2 + bx + c = 0,

x = [-b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4*a*c)]/(2*a)

note: +- is plus or minus

where

a = numerical coeff of x^2,

b = numerical coeff of x and

c = constant

in the problem,

6n^2-19n+15=0 (note that x is just replaced by the x variable)

a = 6

b = -19

c = 15

then we substitute it to quadratic formula:

x = [-b +- sqrt(b^2 - 4*a*c)]/(2*a)

x = [-(-19) +- sqrt((-19)^2 - 4*6*15)]/(2*6)

we can separate it into plus and minus:

using plus:

x = [-(-19) + sqrt((-19)^2 - 4*6*15)]/(2*6)

x = [19 + sqrt(361-360)]/(12)

x = [19 + sqrt(1)]/12

x = (19 + 1)/12

x = 5/3 (this is the first root)

for the minus:

x = [-(-19) - sqrt((-19)^2 - 4*6*15)]/(2*6)

x = [19 - sqrt(1)]/12

x = 18/12

x = 3/2 (second root)

*note: variable x here is also n

hope this helps~ :)
