B = 1
C = 3
B2  4AC =
1  60 =

Applying the quadratic formula :
1 ± √ 59
x = ——————

But we can't square root a negative number. When you square a number, whether it's a negative, or a positive, you'll always get a positive integer. That's why you can't square root a negative. Please check if you've copied out the question right, so we can help you accordingly.
