#### Explanation:

**To write the quadratic formula, your equation first needs to be in standard form:**

**In order to get this, just simplify your equation.**

**Now you can look turn this into the quadratic formula:**

**The variables in standard form are the same as the ones in the quadratic formula, which means you can easily transfer them over.**

**All you have to do is plug in and solve!**

**You should get two real roots as your answer:**
