    when the equation is \(\LARGE\color{black}{ \color{blue}{a} x^2+ \color{magenta}{b}x+ \color{red}{c}=0 }\). then, x solutions go by the following formula: \(\bbox[8pt, lightyellow ,border:8px solid black]{\huge \huge{x=~} \huge{ \frac{-\color{magenta}{b} \pm\sqrt{ \color{magenta}{b} ^2-4 \color{blue}{a} \color{red}{c}}}{2 \color{blue}{a}} } ~ }\)

    you just need to add 8 to both sides, and to identify your abc.
