Hint: In general, the range of y = a(xh)^2+k is [k, infinity) if a > 0

You need to complete the square. Do you know how do to that?

So the answer would be x = 1/4 and x = 3

4x^2 + 13x = 3 4x^2 + 13x + 3 = 0 Now use the quadratic formula to solve for x x = (b+sqrt(b^24ac))/(2a) x = ((13)+sqrt((13)^24(4)(3)))/(2(4)) x = (13+sqrt(169(48)))/(8) x = (13+sqrt(121))/8 x = (13+sqrt(121))/8 or x = (13sqrt(121))/8 x = (13+11)/8 or x = (1311)/8 x = 2/8 or x = 24/8 x = 1/4 or x = 3 So you are correct, nice job
