Which of these equations would not be in quadratic form?
A.X^4-13X^2+36=0
B.2X^(2/5)+X^(1/5)-6=0
C.6x^3+2x^2-8X=0
D.3(2/x-4)^2+5(2/x-4)-2=0

I think its between C or D. C because the exponents are different not doubled and D because its set up is completely the opposite from all the others.

  1. It is in fact C

    D is just a quadratic in (2/x-4), because if you substitute u=2/x-4, you have just 3u^2+5u-2=0

    It is C because as you say, there is not
    a term with twice the exponent of the other.

    Still looking at how to solve these... Both are cubic polynomials? 43x^3 + 13x^2 + 18x - 456 = 0 DO I divide first by x-1? 2x(3x+2)^2=312 Honestly: I would graph the equations and find the roots first. I don't see them off hand.

    Can you pleas Solve the quadric equation step by step 4x square =13x+2 4x^2 = 13x + 2 subtract 13x and 2 from both sides 4x^2 - 13x - 2 = 0 Now use the quadratic formula, since it does not factor.

    How can you tell if an equation is quadratic and not linear? Quadratic equations contain a term that is squared (such as x^2). Linear equations are of the form y = mx + b, where m and b are constants. the variable in a quadratic

    Hi, I am trying to solve graphing quadratic equations. One of the problems is written as -x^2= -2x-1. So if I wanted to put this equation in the proper quadratic equation form, would it be -2x-1-x^2, or -x^2+-2x-1? I'm really not
