(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

.002x - .000001x^2 = .50

2. Relevant equations

-b+-sq.rt.((b^2)-(4ac))/2a

3. The attempt at a solution

Plugging a=-.000001, b=.002, and c=-.5 does not get the the correct answer. x is supposed to be 292.89. I can't remember any other way of going about trying to get this answer. Any suggestions?
