Could someone help me solve this quadratic equation? It's on my hw and I can't really figure it out. They want me to solve this using the quadratic formula. 9x6^=25x1. How do I even set this up in a Quadratic formula method?

9*6^=25x1????
9x^6=25x1???
9x^2=25x1???
set it up by putting everything on one side, equaling it all to 0...
so if it really were the third one....
9x^225x+1 = 0....
then you'd use the formula
(25 +or sqrt(25^24*9*1))/18
do the calculation for plus and for minus and you get both the roots....
