I'm assuming that means \[2x ^{2} + x = 15\]?

2x2 + x = 15 2x2 + x 15 =0 (2x5)(x+3)=0 x= 5/2 OR x=3

okay, you'll need to use the quadratic formula: \[ \frac{b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2}}  4ac}{2a}\]

\[2x^2+x15=0\] \[(2x5)(x+3)=0\] x=2,5 or 3

Rewrite as 2x^2 +6x  5x 15. Now factor by grouping 2x(x +3)  5(x + 3). Factors to (2x 5)(x+3)= 0 x=5/2 and 3

@hoblos I mean 2,5 so 2 and one half = 5/2
