Is this correct:

solve using the quadratic equation:

5x^-4x+1=0

My answer:

x= (2)/(5) +/- (1)/(5)i
Or should i combine the denominators to look like this:
x= (2+/-1)/(5) i

I don't like where you show the i

I would write the solution as

(2 +-i)/5 or 2/5 +-i/5

    how would you solve for y in this problem: x=(y^2+3y)^(1/3) would it equal: y= x^3/y - 3 ? and what about this problem: x= 1/[(y^2+3y-5)^3] would it equal: y = y/x + 5/y - 3? I would appreciate your help very much! Your equation

    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.
