here is a short video to demonstrate how to do this. You will need to pick out the necessary components from your function for the substitution.

In your case, a = -6 b = 5 and c = -2

Substitute these values into the quadratic formula and you will obtain the roots (zeros) of the equation. From a graphical perspective, this will be the location of your X intercepts - where the graph will cross the X-axis
