 Question 103813: Let me try this again as I did not recieve the normal confirmation page that this was sent to the wonderful tutors here. Directions from my Professor are as follows: Make sure that your work is demonstrating the solving method given in the instructions. Use the Insert and Symbols menus in Word to present the radical √ and plus/minus ą symbols. Remember that radicands must be enclosed within [ ]. Typing your work vertically is preferred but optional. If you choose to type horizontally, make sure you are appropriately using grouping symbols. On Pg: 583 of our textbook it shows the quadratic formula. But I somehow am messing up to the point I am so confused I don't know where to begin. Here is the Problem: Solve by using the Quadratic Formula; x^2 - 3x = 7x - 2 Thank You!
