Question: helloandnbspi was asked to use the quadratic formula to solve...

Question details

Hello, 

I was asked to use the quadratic formula to solve 36x^2 + 60x + 25 = 0

The answer is x = -5/6

However, the solution required was:

  • x = -5/6, and
  • x = -5/6 

(i.e., I was meant to repeat it twice). 

Do you know why I would need to repeat it twice to get a correct answer? 

Thanks!
