the function with the sum of roots of 11 and product of roots is 11 is..?

thanks for the help!

• math -

Assuming the function is quadratic with an x^2 coefficient of 1,

in the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0.

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

root sum = -b/a = -b
root product = (1/4a^2)*(-4ac) = -c

x^2 -11x -11 = 0 is the function

Roots are (1/2)(11 + sqrt165)
and (1/2)(11 - sqrt165)

There are many other functions that would meet your criteria, but all of the quadratic ones must be a multiple of the one above.
