: Hi,I was wondering if anyone could help me solve this problem:
: what's x if
: 20 - 3x^2 - 5x^-1/2 = 0
Please check for typos - it can't be right.
It turns into a problem that would give
nightmares to graduate students!
Are you sure that's a -1/2 power?
It doesn't seem like an appropriate exponent
for your level of math. (No slur intended.)
