Simplify quadratic solution

  1. Oct 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Simplify [tex]\frac{-2\pm\sqrt{-56}}{30}[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{-2\pm 2i\sqrt{14}}{30}[/tex]

    [tex]\frac{-1\pm i\sqrt{14}}{15}[/tex]

    Is this correct?

    Yes. I would write it with =, though.
    [tex]\frac{-2\pm\sqrt{-56}}{30}~=~\frac{-2\pm 2i\sqrt{14}}{30}~=~\frac{-1\pm i\sqrt{14}}{15}[/tex]

    Well, it doesn't show. There was no problem with your work. I was just polishing it a bit.
