    Compare your quadratic equation with \(ax^2+bx+c=0\) find a,b,c then the two roots of x are: \(\huge{x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\)

    Put different values of x and get corresponding values of y, plot them and see where the graph intersects the x-axis....... the intersection points are the solutions....

    Your plot is attached. Notice that the curve does not cross the x axis. There are no real roots.
