    to find the x-cordinate, use this formula: -b/2a

    Okay. so now use 7/6 to find it. y = -3x^2-7x+6 y = -3(7/6)^2 -7(7/6) + 6 solve.

    but the way my teacher did it was to set y=0 and just add and divide stuff on left and right side...which is confusing but i suppose we can use quadratic aswell :)
