Which method do you have to use??? Factorisation??

2. hartnn

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

3. Geometry_Hater

ok it just says solve the equation graphically

4. Harkirat

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.
