(4.35E-2 - x)(7.56E-2 -x )
============================
(0.324 + 2x)2



Rearrange to get an expression of the form ax2 + bx + c = 0 and use the quadratic formula (solve for x. This gives:
x = 1.05E-2, 0.143

basically i understand they use the quadratic equation but how did they change that crazy fraction into the quadratic formula?

    If that fraction = 0 (you left that out) then the denominator is not part of the problem unless it is zero.

    32.88 E-4 - 11.91 E-2 x + x^2 = 0

    x = [ 11.91E-2 +/- sqrt(142 E-4 - 132 E-4) ] / 2

    = [ .119 +/- E-2 sqrt(10) ]/2

    = [.119 +/- .031 ]/2

    = .075 or -.044
