 Question 435900: solve the equation n^2+6n+4=0 by compleating the square Click here to see answer by nerdybill(6962)

 Question 435964: I am supposed to come up with a quadratic equation and then solve it related to my field of interest. I am interested in the medical field but do not believe there is a quadratic function related to that field, so I was thinking of a quadratic equation about building a garden. I don't know how to create the equation. What the question should be and how to put it into a formula to then solve. I dont know how to create a story problem that uses a quadratic equation and then apply it? What kind of problem can I apply the quadratic principle to? I hope this is making sense. Can you help me come up with a story problem question that I can solve with a quadratic equation that pertains to gardening or the medical field? Click here to see answer by stanbon(57387)

 Question 436995: How would one go about writing 48/n(n-2)+22 as a quadratic equation? I'm working on the problem: A retailer spent \$48 to purchase a number of special mugs. Two of them were broken in the store, but by selling each of the remaining mugs for \$3 above the original cost per mug, she made a total profit of \$22. Construct an equation that will allow us to solve for the number of mugs, denoted by n, that were originally purchased. Just by looking at the question I know that the mugs she bought were \$4 each and she got 12 of them then sold 10 of them. But I'm lost trying to write out the quadratic equation.
