How do you factor quadratics like this?
We can find the roots, which you can check later, I use the quadratic formula and find the roots,
$x = -31/4 - sqrt(969)/4$
$x = 2/(31 + sqrt(969))$
We know that the standard form of a quadratic is $(x - r_1)(x-r_2)$ solve it from here
Heyy! In scenarios like this, the \(a\) coefficient isn't \(1\), so I would either factor it using decomposition or use the quadratic formula.
here's a article on decomposition (https://tentotwelvemath.com/fmp-10/factors-and-products/factoring-a-trinomial-using-decomposition/)

Hoped that helped!
