    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.

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