TL;DR of comments below: middle schoolers showing off basic algebra skills.

I think this is a joke but I don't know and it's worrying me.

adu (09/14/2013) [] Okay guys, we're all proud that you passed Algebra 1, so you can stop trying to show that you can solve a simple quadratic.

I was about to respond to you about correcting him and then realized that it was you correcting yourself. I now know how people don't notice that it's sometimes one person arguing with themselves in threads.

x^2+3x5=175
175 175
x^2+3x180=0
(x12)(x+15)=0 Then you turn it into a binomial
Then you solve each one separately so you get x=12 and x=15
175 175
x^2+3x180=0
(x12)(x+15)=0 Then you turn it into a binomial

bronywhat (09/15/2013) [] Somehow I knew half of the comments would be people solving the simple ******* algebra problem and yet all coming up with different answers.

why would X be 2 different numbers? if they were meant to be different it would be x and y

i graduated high school **** ass and every math class i took i was to the understanding that when a variable was there it meant they were the same number

you're an asshole dude, i just didn't understand the math problem cause math wasn't my strongest subject
#72 to #68

whiteboitrollin (09/15/2013) []
No because x is the answer and there are 2 different answers in this problem. When a binomial equals zero you have to solve for each side of the binomial. When you do this you plug each one back into the original equation. Which ever one when plugged in is right, that is the answer. In this case, when both are plugged in they are both correct. Its basic Algebra. You'll learn it in middle school or high school depending on how smart you are

I like how you thumbed me down when I solved the problem and unlike some other people commenting, I solved it correctly but ok thats cool
#64 to #63

whiteboitrollin (09/15/2013) []
Yeah and to get it to equal zero you subtract the 175 to get it on the other side. Then everything equals zero, you turn it into a binomial and then you solve for each

Out of the other 400 people that commented, probably 2 got it wrong...

catkids (09/15/2013) [] x^2 + 3x  5 = 175
Subtract 175
x^2 + 3x  180
Super fast factoring
(x + 15)(x  12)
Set each to zero
X = 15 or +12
Hurray for math!

collegedood (09/14/2013) []
yes, but it was obviously factorable (im a math major and algebra TA) so you don't need to use it. But if you do use it then yes you will get the same answers.

i dont know why you are being thumbed down
you asked for help and you got educated
i say that is a success
