Homework Help: Pre-Calc-Please check my answer-I think I have it

Posted by Sheila on Wednesday, September 7, 2011 at 4:07pm.

Could someone please check these-I had tried one last night but it was really wrong so I'm been working-hopefully these are correct.

What are the roots of the equation and answers have to be simplified
2x^2 + 5x-10 =0
2x^2 + 5x-10+10=0+10
2x^2 + 5x = 10
2x^2 + 5x/2 = 10/2
2x^2/2 + 5x/2 = 5
x^2 + 5/2x = 5
(5/2 * 1/2)^2 = 5/4^2
x^2 + 5/2x + (5/4)^2 = 5 + (5/4)^2
(x+5/4)^2 = 105/16
x + 5/4 = +minus sqrt 105/16 = sqrt 3^1 * 5^1*7^1 = sqrt 105/4
x= -5/4 + sqrt105/4 or x= -5/4 - sqrt 105/4 Is this correct and simplified thank you Someone suggested a site that will do it but I want to learn on my own
