Find the Values of X

12p^2+11p-22=0



I'm having some trouble with this math question can somebody please explain it. Please I would like to know how to do it since I have a Benchmark Tomorrow. -thank you

  1. Ms. Sue

    Values of X??

    There is no X in your problem.

  2. Jenny

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

  3. Ms. Sue

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

  4. bob

    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.

  5. Lauren

    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.

  6. ~christina~

    quadradic formula:

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

    solve for p.

  7. ~christina~

    correction:

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

    NOW you can solve for p.
