that means that

a = 1

b = 0

c = 2

d = 1

e = 3

i'm pretty sure i did something wrong... i'm not that good at math anyway

It can't be. If b were 0, then ab would equal 0, not 1. 

 

Also, don't say that... Constructive Feedback.

I plugged it into a calculator, because I personally can't solve it. Here is what I found:

 

\(a = {\sqrt{30}\over4} \)

\(b = {2\sqrt{30}\over15}\)

\(c = {\sqrt{15}\over\sqrt2}\)

\(d ={ \sqrt{30}\over5}\)

\(e ={ 2\sqrt{30}\over3}\)
