1. I know how to do it and what to do etc.
I may have made a mistake somewhere but was just wondering if someone could tell me what answer they got when they attempted this.

If possible could you make a this is what I done and it would be helpful knowing where i went wrong

I got a negative root (used quadratic formula) but i don't think i am suppose to get one but not sure

Thanks

You added wrong. The 54 doesn't even appear anywhere, where did you pull that from??

Check again. Like for one, where do you even pull the 54 from when the 81 is the ONLY constant term??

Correct numbers though signs aren't all right. Also =0.
11. Is 3y^2+15y+27

1. Close (even with you're wrong)
2. You forgot the equals sign, so technically you cannot divide by anything.

6y^2 - 45y + 81
15. No need to be pedantic

6y^2 - 45y + 81
= 0

Yep. You can carry on from there

Hard not to be when you're technically wrong. Especially with the wrong sign on the second term.
