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:

$$a = {\sqrt{30}\over4}$$

$$b = {2\sqrt{30}\over15}$$

$$c = {\sqrt{15}\over\sqrt2}$$

$$d ={ \sqrt{30}\over5}$$

$$e ={ 2\sqrt{30}\over3}$$
