1. Just use the quadratic formula:

x = (-(c-a)±√((c-a)^2 - 4(b-c)(a-b)))/(2(b-c))

You can play around with that some, but I don't see much in the way of simplification.

Show that the equation (1) divided by (x+1) - (x)divided by (x-2)=0 has no real roots Well, to begin, start with 1/(x+1-x). The x's cancel out because they are opposite signs, so now you have 1/1, or just 1. Then, you are dividing

Find the polynomials roots to each of the following problems: #1) x^2+3x+1 #2) x^2+4x+3=0 #3) -2x^2+4x-5 #3 is not an equation. Dod you omit "= 0" at the end? #2 can be factored into (x+1)(x+3) = 0, so the roots are x=-1 and -3.

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.
