\[\textbf{HINT}\]Add \(10\) to both sides, then add \(2.25\)...

This can be solved the same way I showed you before. Follow the example from your last complete the square problem.

\[4x^2  3x + 2.25 = 12.25\]Multiplying both sides by \(100\) is an idea.

When you are completing the square, you basically add \(\left(\dfrac{\text{coefficient of }x}{2}\right)^2\) to both sides.
