Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, look at the middle number, can you seperate that into 2 numbers that would allow you to factor by grouping?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can use this formula: \[x _{1,2} = \frac{ b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2}  4ac} }{ 2a }\] where a = 2, b = 5, c =3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The value of a,b and c, you can get from the equation \[ax ^{2}+bx+c\] You can solve the various forms of equations with ease.
