Factor to solve the equation
3x^2+10x-98=0

  • algebra -

    This is not geometry. There are no rational integer solutions to this equation.

    The roots are
    x = (1/6)[-10 +35.72..] = 4.287..
    and
    x = (1/6)[-10 -35.72..] = -7.620..

    One way of factoring it would be
    3*(x-4.287)(x+7.620) = 0
