## anonymous one year ago How to factor this? $$x^2 + \frac{3}{2}x - 1 = 0$$

1. anonymous

Is that the best way? the quadratic formula?

@nixy I suggest you multiply by 2 to get rid of the fraction. Then you choose the best way.

It would make the equation much less intimidating if you multiplied the whole equation by two and removed the fraction.
