    x^2+4x+3 = 0 (x+1) (x+ 3) = 0 then x = -1 or x = -3

    set up equation so that you have: ax^2+bx+c=0 and use a, b and c correctly in your formula

    use \[x = \frac{ -b \pm \sqrt{(b^{2} - 4ac)} }{ 2a }\]

    to solve x²+4x + 3 =0 you should find the value of x, one way to do this by using formula above ...,

    \[x = \frac{ -b \pm \sqrt{b^{2}-4ac} }{ 2a }\] \[x = \frac{ -4 \pm \sqrt{4^{2}-(4)(1)(3)} }{ 2(1) }\]
