Solve each of the following quadratic equations:


Answer :

taking LCM



Using the splitting middle term - the middle term of the general equation is divided in two such values that:


Product = a.c


For the given equation a = 10 ;b = - 3; c = - 1


= 10. - 1 = - 10


And either of their sum or difference = b


= - 3


Thus the two terms are - 5 and 2


Difference = - 5 + 2 = - 3


Product = - 5.2 = - 10




5x(2x-1) + 1(2x-1) = 0


(5x + 1)(2x-1) = 0


(5x + 1) = 0 or (2x-1) = 0
