# Solve the following quadratic equation for x : 9x^2 − 6b^2x − (a^4 − b^4) = 0 - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Solve the following quadratic equation for x :

9x2 − 6b2x − (a4b4) = 0

#### Solution

For the given quadratic equation 9x26b2x(a4b4)=0, discriminant is calculated by

D=(6b2)24×9×[(a4b4)]

= 36b4+36(a4b4)

=36a4

Using the quadratic formula, we get

x=(6b^2+-sqrt(36a^4))/(2xx9)

= (6b^2+-6a^2)/18

=(b^2+-a^2)/3

:. x=(b^2+a^2)/3" or "(b^2-a^2)/3

Is there an error in this question or solution?
