  1. 2x2 - 5x - 3
    2x2 - 6x +1x -3
    2x (x - 3) +1 (x - 3)
    (x - 3) (2x+1)
    x = 3, x = -1/2
    so, zeroes of x2 +px+q are 2*3 = 6 and 2 * -1/2 = -1
    let the zeroes be a = 6 and b = -1
    a+b = -coefficient of x/coefficient of x2
    6 + (-1) = -p/1
    5 = -p
    p = -5
    a*b = constant term/coefficient of x2
    6 * (-1) = q/1
    q = -6
