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 formula   5. Originally Posted by didact Originally Posted by DrRocket Originally Posted by didact

Then use the function to find the new equation with its given root using the formula That is essentially what I said. Go ahead now and do it.  6.

The solution I arrived at as the new equation is: I will appreciate if it is commented on.  7. Originally Posted by didact Originally Posted by DrRocket Originally Posted by didact Originally Posted by DrRocket Originally Posted by didact

as long as you have made no mistakes when plugging in to the equation:  then i see no reason why it should be wrong. (havent tried it myself, as its extremely tedious)  8.

Thanks, that is exactly what i did. And its sure tedious for a rudimental question.  Bookmarks
