Well no, because x does equal both of them, putting the 1 and 2 would just be a notation for your own reference, not anymore correct than what is already there
Here's the deal, there are 3 types of people on FJ.
1. Your average joe (probably knows maths up to primary school level)
2. Educated bastards who specialise in their field [rare!]
3. People who don't read comments/give a ****
Gonna need to come up with something more impressive for thumbs man
I don't see why everyone hates it so much. My algebra teacher gave us an awesome little story to go with it. The negative boy couldn't decide whether he wanted to go to the radical party so he missed out on four awesome chicks, it was all over at 2 a.m.
Quadratic formula is something learned in 8th grade. If you comment about how you're skilled in the use of this formula, and/or you recently had a test on it, you probably shouldn't be on this website.
Hey Anon;
1st: Go **** Yourself
2nd: Just because you passed high school Geometry and are feeling cocky, doesn't give you the right to tell our younger constituency that they aren't welcome
3: Go **** Yourself

You can tell that most people commenting are of a certain age because they all want to prove that they are familiarized with this formula... kids always want to show something they just learned

What you wrote isn't possible for any real numbers. What you're proposing is that 4*0*x is greater than y^2. that would make the first number, no matter what x is, 0. The second number can't be a real number because any number, including negatives, squared equals a positive number. Unless B is an imaginary number, such as i or another square root of a negative number, there is no way A could ever be 0.
