    {"x = 3/4 (1-i sqrt(7)) ~~ 0.75-1.98431 i", "x = 3/4 (1+i sqrt(7)) ~~ \ 0.75+1.98431 i"}

    Divide both sides by -2: x^2-(3 x)/2+9/2 = 0 Subtract 9/2 from both sides: x^2-(3 x)/2 = -9/2 Add 9/16 to both sides: x^2-(3 x)/2+9/16 = -63/16 Factor the left hand side: (x-3/4)^2 = -63/16 Take the square root of both sides: sqrt(x-3/4)^2 = (3 i sqrt(7))/4 Eliminate the absolute value: x-3/4 = -(3 i sqrt(7))/4 or x-3/4 = (3 i sqrt(7))/4 Add 3/4 to both sides: x = 3/4 (1-i sqrt(7)) or x-3/4 = (3 i sqrt(7))/4 Add 3/4 to both sides: x = 3/4 (1-i sqrt(7)) or x = 3/4 (1+i sqrt(7))
