 Question 360025: Hi, I'm studying for a test and the problem below seems so simple, but I can't figure this out: I multiplied by the lcd and got: 7x^2 + 6x - 4 = 0 I tried using the quadratic formula and got: I get confused when I get a negative number in a square root, because we're learning about complex numbers in the same chapter so I don't understand why I can simplify this without using an imaginary number. The answer on the review sheet is: I honestly don't know how to get there. I simplified the sqrt(-76) and got 2sqrt(38) so how I'm supposed to end up with 37 in the sqrt has me really lost. Please share your knowledge with me! I'm a little worried after struggling with this for a while now :-/ Thanks for your time. Click here to see answer by scott8148(6628)
