Hello guys, could I get some help with this question? Please :
Create new quadratic equation with new roots of 1/ALPHA^2 and 1/BETA^2 (1/ means 1 over as in a fraction)
From given equation: 5x^2 -2x +4 =0.
I think I have to first find the sum and product of actual roots then use the values for the new roots sum and product.
I did that and I am still getting the wrong answer, in the back of the book the correct answer is 16x^2 + 36x +25 =0 (way different than what I get)
