Hi, at first excuse please my poor english....

I want to solve equation ..concretly this: (b^2)*((m2 + r*Cos(β))*Cos(α) - (n2 + r*Sin(β))*Sin(α) + m1)^2 + (a^2)*((m2 + r* Cos(β))*Sin(α) + (n2 + r*Sin(β))*Cos(α) + n1)^2 - (a^2)*(b^2) == 0

and i want to solve it for variable β ...but if I use "Solve" command, i get two values for β , i want only to get quadratic equation aβ^2 + bβ + c = 0 not it's roots

thanks for every help
