------------
That is step 1.

Then you can factor it.
(2x - 3)*(4x + 1) = 0
-----
2x-3 = 0
x = 3/2
-----
4x+1 = 0
x = -1/4

If it can't be factored, use the quadratic equation
 Solved by pluggable solver: SOLVE quadratic equation (work shown, graph etc) Quadratic equation (in our case ) has the following solutons: For these solutions to exist, the discriminant should not be a negative number. First, we need to compute the discriminant : . Discriminant d=196 is greater than zero. That means that there are two solutions: . Quadratic expression can be factored: Again, the answer is: 1.5, -0.25. Here's your graph:
