 Question 223641: Ok, so I am asked to write a quadratic equation based on the answer given. I have already done it, but someone is telling me I am wrong, and when I did it again, I came up with a completely different answer! So confused. Anyway, the problem is: 3i , -3i Here are my original steps: x-3i =0 or x+3i =0 (x-3i ) (x+3i ) =0 -9+2=0 +9+2=0 +11=0 The second time around I multiplied 9 and 2, coming up with +18=0 I am kind of confused on what to do with the square root value. Do you add it to the equation, as I did the first time, or do you multiply, as I did the second time? Thank you. Click here to see answer by tutor_paul(493)

 Question 223757: I am stumped on this one. I have to Find all real solutions based on a fractional exponent? 2x-5 +2=0 The book wants me to solve the problem using substitution. However, I can't find an equation that would make sense to me. I am letting = 5 and w = x I then come up with -5 +2w+2=0 This is where I draw a blank. I can't find a quadratic equation that will make that statement above true to continue solving. I am assuming that I am doing this wrong, but beating my head against the book for the last hour now has only produced a squishy sound behind my skull! lol Thank you in advance for help.
