x^2 = 2x + 10

x^2 - 2x - 10 = 0

Using quadratic formula, we get

x = (- b ± √b^2 - 4ac)/2a

Now

x = (- (-2) ± √(-2)^2 - 4(-2)(-10)) / 2(2)

x = ( 2 ± √4 - 80) / 4

x = ( 2 ± √-76) / 4

x = ( 2 ± √-4*19) / 4

x = ( 2 ± 2√-19) / 4

x = 2(1 ± √19i) / 4

x = (1 ± √19i) / 2

Hence the roots are x = { (1 + √19i)/2 , (1 - √19i)/2 }
