12x^2+11x=5

- COLLEGE ALGEBRA ..HELP! -
**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 9:23pmdivide by 12

x^2 + (11/12)x = 5/12

add the square of half the middle term coefficient

x^2 + 11x/12 + 121/576 = 5/12 + 121/576

(x + 11/24)^2 = 361/576

x+ 11/24 = ± √361/24

x = (-11 ± √361)/24

BTW, just noticed below that bobpursley did the same question for you yesterday

**Mgraph**, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 9:24pmx^2+11/12x=5/12

x^2+2*(11/24)*x+(11/24)^2=5/12+(11/24)^2

(x+11/24)^2=(19/24)^2

x+11/24=19/24

or

x+11/24=-19/24

**Reiny**, Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at 9:25pmHow silly of me not to notice that √361 = 19
