**x = 60**

**x = 10**

Not sure how to get the answer at all. I have the quadratic formula but I am not sure how to apply it

Tutors, sign in to answer this question.

Multiply both sides of the equation by -1. You get the following equation:

x^2 - 70x + 600 = 0

Factor the quadratic equation. You get:

(x - 60)(x - 10) = 0

x - 60 = 0

x - 10 = 0

Agree with Muhammad

you could also use the equation

x = (-b ± sqrt(b^{2}-4*a*c)/(2*a)

-x^2+70x-600

ax^2+bx+c

a = -1

b = 70

c = -600

x = (-b ± sqrt(b^2-4*a*c)/(2*a) = (-70 ± sqrt(70^2-4*(-1)*(-600))/(2*(-1))

x = (-70 ± sqrt(4900-2400)/(-2)

x = (-70 ± sqrt(2500)/(-2)

x = (-70 ± 50)/(-2)

x = (-70 + 50)/(-2) or x = (-70 - 50)/(-2)

x = (-20)/(-2) or x = (-120)/(-2)

x = 10 or x = 60
