In the quadratic 2(x^2) - 7x - 7 = 0, what are the values of a, b and c?

a = 2, b = 7 and c = 7

a = -2, b = -7 and c = -7

a = 2, b = -7 and c = -7

Solve 2(x^2) - 7x - 7 = 0, leaving the answer in surd (square root) form.

(7 ± suq(105) ) / 4

(-7 ± suq(105) ) / 4

(7 ± suq(105) ) / 2

What is the final result of dividing

To divide two fractions, keep the first fraction the same, turn the divide sign to a multiply and flip the second fraction upside down.

Then multiply the two fractions together. This is known as multiplying by the reciprocal.

This cannot be simplified as there are no common factors.
