Using the quadratic formula to solve 5x = 6x^2 – 3, what are the values of x?

5x = 6x^2 – 3

Subtract 5x from both sides:

0 = 6x^2 – 5x – 3

a = 6, b = -5, c = -3

x = (-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac))/(2a)

x = (-(-5) ± √((-5)^2 - 4(6)(-3)))/(2(6))

x = (5 ± √(25 + 72))/12

x = (5 ± √(97))/12

5x = 6x^2 – 3

Subtract 5x from both sides:

0 = 6x^2 – 5x – 3

a = 6, b = -5, c = -3

x = (-b ± √(b^2 - 4ac))/(2a)

x = (-(-5) ± √((-5)^2 - 4(6)(-3)))/(2(6))

x = (5 ± √(25 + 72))/12

x = (5 ± √(97))/12
