Someone gave me this problem of solving x earlier, and I just couldn't do it
Is it even possible?
Code:
2x^2 + 5x = 1100
Is it even possible?
2x^2 + 5x = 1100

Are you joking? You're at uni and can't even recognise a simple quadratic statement? Thats GCSE maths ffs. No wonder so many graduates are finding themselves jobless!Danger Phoenix said:Someone gave me this problem of solving x earlier, and I just couldn't do it

I did quadratics involving 2x^2 at GCSE level, though maybe I was an exception?spirit said:its not actaully on GCSE afaik, quadratics there are actually very simple not 2x^2 and usually have integer answers...

PinkPig said:Rubbish, that one was as simple as they get. It's not imaginery, you plug the numbers into the formula printed at the front of the paper. Could easily come up.

the_brainaic said:The formula is on the equations sheet in the paper. All you have to do is put the numbers in and see what they churn out. You're expected to be able to use the formula in GCSE. It may seem harsh but it's absurdly simple. And even if you don't know the formula you can always google it up instead of asking on here and claiming that it can't be solved.
