 Solved by pluggable solver: SOLVE quadratic equation with variable Quadratic equation (in our case ) has the following solutons: For these solutions to exist, the discriminant should not be a negative number. First, we need to compute the discriminant : . The discriminant -47 is less than zero. That means that there are no solutions among real numbers. If you are a student of advanced school algebra and are aware about imaginary numbers, read on. In the field of imaginary numbers, the square root of -47 is + or - . The solution is Here's your graph:

Hope this helps!
