    Trial and error. Keep trying different set of numbers until you get it.

    factoring doesn't always work if factoring fails, use the quadratic formula

    Use the quadratic equation roots = -b +/- (sqrt(b^2-4ac))/2a, where a=4,b=1,c=3

    It doesn't always work, but you must exhaust the easy possibilities.
