if 1/6 is a solution that means x = 1/6 is a root that means 6x  1 is a factor so just divide 6x^2  19x + 3 by 6x  1

sum of the roots of Quadratic equation ax^2+bx+c=0 is b/a so in our case a=6 b=19 so the sum of roots should be ,let unknown root is r 1/6+r=(19)/6 \[\Large r+\frac{1}{6}=\frac{19}{6}\] OR \[\Large r=\frac{19}{6}\frac{1}{6}\] simplify it and you got your answer !!
