#### Question

Find the roots of the quadratic equations 2x2 – 7x + 3 = 0 by applying the quadratic formula.

#### Solution

2x2 – 7x + 3 = 0

On comparing this equation with ax2 + bx + c = 0, we get

a = 2, b = -7 and c = 3

By using quadratic formula, we get

x = -b±sqrt(b2 - 4ac)/(2a)

⇒ x = 7±sqrt(49 - 24)/4

⇒ x = 7±sqrt25/4

⇒ x = 7±5/4

⇒ x = (7+5)/4

⇒ x = 12/4 " or " 2/4

∴ x = 3 " or " 1/2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
