Answer:

here is how,

Explanation:

as #x# has the highest power of #2#, there are two values of #x#

we know,

#x=(-b+-sqrt(b^2-4ac))/(2a)#

#=(-3+-sqrt(3^2-4*18(-1)))/(2*18)#

#=(-3+-sqrt(9+72))/36#

#=(-3+-sqrt81)/36#

#=(-3+-9)/36#

using the + value,

#x=(-3+9)/36#

#=6/36#

#=1/6#

using the - value,
#x=(-3-9)/36#

#=-12/36#

#=-1/3#
