Best to just factorise. However, you could use the factor theorem if you really don't feel like it: If f(a) = 0, than (x-a) is a factor. Note , for example, 2x -1 = 2(x - (1/2))

Note if you let x = (1/4) $f(x) = 4 \times \frac{1}{4}^2-13 \times \frac{1}{4} + 3 = 0$

Factors into (4x - 1)(x - 3) = 0
