    You can try doing the quadratic formula.

    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 !!

    It is \[Sum = -\frac ba = \frac{19}{6}\]

    So, you suntract 1/6 to get 18/6 which simplifies...
