Solve the first equation to find a and b in terms of z, m and n.Originally Posted by didact
A & B are the actual root values of the first equation i.e is they are constants. Actually i am required to find the symmetric function of A & B. Then use the function to find the new equation with its given root using the formulaOriginally Posted by DrRocket
That is essentially what I said. Go ahead now and do it.Originally Posted by didact
The solution I arrived at as the new equation is:Originally Posted by DrRocket
I will appreciate if it is commented on.
as long as you have made no mistakes when plugging in to the equation:Originally Posted by didact
then i see no reason why it should be wrong. (havent tried it myself, as its extremely tedious)
Thanks, that is exactly what i did. And its sure tedious for a rudimental question.Originally Posted by Heinsbergrelatz
