$x_1=2.7016,\:x_2=-3.7016$

## Step-by-step explanation

Problem to solve:

$x+x^2=10$
1

Rewrite the equation

$x^2+x-10=0$
2

To find the roots of a polynomial of the form $ax^2+bx+c$ we use the quadratic formula, where $a=1$, $b=1$ and $c=-10$

$x =\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$

$x_1=2.7016,\:x_2=-3.7016$
$x+x^2=10$
