 Question 256119: How do you solve the equation x^2-6x-25=0 and write your answer in the form ab+i? Answer by stanbon(57361)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do you solve the equation x^2-6x-25=0 and write your answer in the form ab+i? ------ Use the quadratic formula: x = [6 +- sqrt(36 - 4*1*-25)]/2 x = [6 +- sqrt(136)]/2 x = [6 +- 2sqrt(34)]/2 x = 3 + sqrt(34) or x = 3 - sqrt(34) ========================================= Cheers, Stan H.
