The standard quadratic equation is `ax^2+bx+c=0.`

Organize your equation using the standard form.

`x^2 - 6x + 10 = 0`

Remember quadratic formula:


Compare equations and find a,b,c.





Use theory of complex numbers to express `sqrt -1 = i.`


Reduce by 2.


ANSWER: The roots of quadratic are complex. `x_1=3+i and x_2=3-i.`
