There's a formula that will kill all quadratic equations... Whether they factor or not... It will seek out and destroy... It will hunt down all solutions... It's...

THE QUADRANATOR!

Rumor is that this is going to be Arnold Schwarzenegger's next movie.  He's going to go around giving everyone compound fractions.

OK, here it is:

If    ax^2 + bx + c = 0
 

     then

x = -b +/- sqrt( b^2 - 4ac ) / 2a

It's really called the quadratic formula.

Know it... LOVE IT!

Now, I just need to show you what to do with it.  That would be helpful, huh?
