A stunt pilot is testing a new plane. The equation that models his height over time is f(x)=15x^2 -195x +950, where x is his the time in seconds and (fx) is his height in metres. Determine when the pilot is below 500 metres.

I subbed in 500 for f(x)

f(x)=15x^2 -195x +950
500 = 15x^2 -195x + 950
0=15x^2 -195x + 950 - 500
0=15x^2 - 195x + 450

What do i do next?
