To find the roots of a polynomial of the form $ax^2+bx+c$ we use the quadratic formula, where in this case $a=10$, $b=-1$ and $c=51$. Then substitute the values of the coefficients of the equation in the quadratic formula: $\displaystyle x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$x=\frac{-1\cdot -1\pm \sqrt{{\left(-1\right)}^2-4\cdot 10\cdot 51}}{2\cdot 10}$

Learn how to solve problems step by step online. Solve the quadratic equation 10x^2-x+51=0. To find the roots of a polynomial of the form ax^2+bx+c we use the quadratic formula, where in this case a=10, b=-1 and c=51. Then substitute the values of the coefficients of the equation in the quadratic formula: \displaystyle x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}. Simplifying. To obtain the two solutions, divide the equation in two equations, one when \pm is positive (+), and another when \pm is negative (-). Calculate the power \sqrt{-2039} using complex numbers.
