set it equal to zero

x^2 - 17x + 6 = 0.

Solve with quadratic formula

17+-sqrt(17^2-4*1*6)/2*1

about 16.63 or -.36

do u mean solve 3 squared? if so it = 3x3x3 that's how u work it out so the answer would be 27. hope this helps :)

Your Problem: X - 4 = ?Current Problem: 3 [squared] - 4 = ?How: When a numbered is squared, it means you multiply it against itself. So, 3 squared equals 3x3.3x3 = 9So, you would then take 9 and minus it by 4, which would than equal 5.Answer:3 [squared] - 4 = 5or9 - 4 = 5

Normally you would need the remainder of the equation to solve it. However, anything times one equals itself, so the answer (in part) is "2y". Remember, you can't solve the equation fully without finding the value of 'y', and you cannot find the value of 'y' unless you know what resides on the other side of the equal sign.

That equation is impossible to solve because Sin-1(3) is an impossible proportion in a triangle. Earlier in the problem you might have made a mistake. Or, if that is the whole problem you cannot deduce an answer because there is no value of X, Real or imaginary that works in that equation.

It depends on what you wanted to do - graph it, solve it, factorise it, etc.

if you want to "solve" this equation, you need an equals sign somehwere! For example, if the problem was 2x - 52=5 then you could solve. You add 52 (or 25) to both sides so the equation becomes 2x = 30. Then you divide both sides by 2 to get x=15

You would take 2 and replace it for x in your other equation and solve.

Please note that in general, if you have ONE equation with TWO or more variables, there is not a unique solution. You can assign an arbitrary value for "a", replace it, then calculate what would be the corresponding value of "b". Or, probably even better, you can solve for "b" in terms of "a". Then you can assign any value to "a", and calculate the corresponding value for "b". To actually solve for "b", first solve for b2 in the usual way, that is, manipulate the equation until b2 is on the left, everything else on the right. Then take the square root on each side.

You would do it it by oppisites. 3+2+4=9 which equals C.

X (x - 25) So X = 0 Or X = +25

This equation is unsolvable since there are two unknowns and only one equation. You would require a second equation in order to solve it.

y*y = 11y Divide both sides by y: y = 11

You'd need another equation to sub in
