Homework Help: maths

Consider the quadratic equation
m^2 x^2 + 2(2m-5)x + 8 = 0

a) If 2 is a root of the equation, find the possible values of m (there are four possible values)

b) For each value of m, find the other root

I have actually calculated the answer m=1 or m=-3 for (a), but I was told that there are four possible values of m. I was stuck on this part.
