what is the solution
1/2x^2-x+5=0
could someone please explain

  • algebra -

    I think you will find that if you mean

    1/(2x^2-x+5)=0

    there is no solution. The graph has a horizontal asymptote at y=0, meaning it never is really 0.

    If that's not what you intended, then please clarify.

    the possible answers are;
    1+-i sqrt 11
    -1+-i sqrt 9
    1 +- i sqrt 9
    -1 +- i sqrt 11

  • algebra -

    i figured it out to be 1+isqrt9

  • algebra -

    1. D 2isqrt7
    2. B over 4 up 2
    3. B 11-2i
    4. C 20-4i
    5. A 31+i/26
    6. B 1+isqrt9

    You're welcome
