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.

X can also be -15

Somehow I knew half of the comments would be people solving the simple 						*******					 algebra problem and yet all coming up with different answers.

(x-12)(x+15)=0
x=12 x=-15

Solution for x^2+3x-5=175 equation:
x2 + 3x + -5 = 175
Reorder the terms:
-5 + 3x + x2 = 175
Solving
-5 + 3x + x2 = 175
Solving for variable 'x'.
Reorder the terms:
-5 + -175 + 3x + x2 = 175 + -175
Combine like terms: -5 + -175 = -180
-180 + 3x + x2 = 175 + -175
Combine like terms: 175 + -175 = 0
-180 + 3x + x2 = 0
(-15 + -1x)(12 + -1x) = 0
-15 + -1x = 0
-15 + -1x = 0
-15 + 15 + -1x = 0 + 15
Combine like terms: -15 + 15 = 0
0 + -1x = 0 + 15
-1x = 0 + 15
Combine like terms: 0 + 15 = 15
-1x = 15
Divide each side by '-1'.
x = -15

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!

...... i... im doing something wrong i need a play by play on how to solve this solution...

i keep getting 3.91
User avatar #27 to #26 - 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 have to show my math skills on the internet because my mom doesn't hug me

I don't know what's worse, the fact that op made me do math or the fact that I got it right without knowing how I got it right (12 for anyone who was curious)
#111 - xxxsonic fanxxx (09/15/2013) [-]
Why did they make us do this at all? I have forgotten how because I have never once in my life needed to solve an equation like this.

i dont understand how people find math so hard
im a year ahead in math and i understand the people in the same grade as me that are in the expected class and the year behind class but i dont understand the people in my grade that are in the basic math class where the hardest thing in it is probably fractions

It's grade 10 math.. you know.. for 15 year olds.

I want some ***** to explain how you get the derivative of a vector field.

It's been a while since I was in algebra class, but I do believe the answer's "X=12"

You can use the method of completing the square.
#91 to #17 - catkids (09/15/2013) [-]
Completing the square is kind of only used when you can't get a non-decimal number when factoring. Or you could just use the quadratic formula. I could never get the hang of completing the square, though.
