Hello Guest!

 

\( \frac{1}{2}x^2+sx-\frac{1}{3}=0\)

a           b        c

 

\(x = {-s \pm \sqrt{s^2-4\cdot 0.5\cdot \frac{1}{3}} \over 2\cdot 0.5}\\ x =-s\pm \sqrt{s^2-\frac{2}{3}}\)

 

\(s\in \{-3\mathbb Z\}\ |\ (x =-s+ \sqrt{s^2-\frac{2}{3}})\)   

\(s\in \{+3\mathbb Z\}\ |\ (x =-s- \sqrt{s^2-\frac{2}{3}})\)

Incorrect. Question cannot be solved.
