Use the Quadratic Formula to find the value of x in the first part. Then sub that value for x in the second part.

Guest has given you a very good teaching answer.

And you have responded appropriately.

I am very pleased with both of you.

 

This is what i suggest.

Find the answer for x - yes I know there will be 2 answers but just leave them with the plus/minus answer. You will not need to seperate them.

You can work out both at onces.

 

You have x=   [3(+ or -)√109]/10       

now find 10x

then find 10x - 3

 

Now it is easy to square it.  Both answers will be the same.
