  2. I know, that's what the question asked, but I think that they mean the value for p.

  4. if they did mean p, i think it is just quadratics or something. have a look in your textbook for quadratics.

    Ive forgotten the right way to do it, sorry.

  5. Use the quadratic formula to solve for the variable, p.
    I would use google or another search engine to find the formula so you can plug all the numbers in correctly.

  6. quadradic formula:

    a+/- sqrt[(b^2-4ac)/2a]

    solve for p.

  7. correction:

    p= -b+/- sqrt[(b^2-4ac)/2a]

    NOW you can solve for p.
