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.

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

solve for p.

7. correction:

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

NOW you can solve for p.
