Solve:
2x^2  5x^1  3 = 0
2a^2 5a  3 = 0
(2a^2  ) + ( a  ) = 0
I am stuck here please help.

Reiny,
is 2a^2 5a  3 = 0
supposed to be the simplified version of
2x^2  5x^1  3 = 0 ??
your first equation would be
2/x^2  5/x  3 = 0
multiply each term by x^2
2  5x  3x^2 = 0
3x^2 + 5x  2 = 0
(3x1)(x+2) = 0
x = 1/3 or x = 2

Jennifer,
yes that is the sinplified version of
