For this problem, you should use the quadratic formula see http://www.khanacademy.org/math/trigonometry/polynomial_and_rational/quad_formula_tutorial/v/using-the-quadratic-formula for how to do it. You will get a minus number inside a square root, which means a complex number.

isn't the answer x=-1+isqrt15/2?

almost, the bottom should be 2*a = 4 $x= \frac{-1 ± \sqrt{15} \ i}{4}$
