Solve the equation using the Quadratic Formula

5xsquared+13x-6=0

i think it is -2/5,3

5x^2 + 13x -6

(5x -2)(x +3)=0
You are correct.

From Bob Pursley's work you can see that his solution gives +2/5 and not
-2/5. The +2/5 is correct.

drbob is right on that.

the solutions are 2/5, and -3
check those.

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.
