The solutions to this quadratic may be expressed as:

$$\\x_+=\frac{1-2m+\sqrt{6m^2+m+4}}{2m+3}\\\\x_-=\frac{1-2m-\sqrt{6m^2+m+4}}{2m+3}$$

There are an infinite number of values of m that have one root negative and one root positive.  However, if you are looking for the value of m that makes one root the negative of the other, then that is clearly m = 1/2.

That is because   1-2m    would have to equal 0.
