Problem#22 sect. 10.2

x^2-6x-3=0

My answer I keep getting two different answers : I get these two everytime i do it differently.

I get : x= 3 +- radical(12) or x = 3+-2radical(3)

Problem #28 sect10.2
2x^2+10x+11=0

My answer i keepgetting two different answer i don't know which one is correct:

x = (-10+-radical(12))/(2(2))

    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.
