**MathMate**, Friday, January 1, 2010 at 10:53pmFor the general quadratic equation

ax²+bx+c=0

the sum of the roots is -b/a,

and the product of the roots is c/a.

So we look for an equation where

-b/a = 3/4 and

c/a = -2

(a) and (b) are rejected because c/a>0

for (c),

c/a = -8/4 = -2,

-b/a = -(-3)/4 = 3/4

So the answer is (c)
