Answer:

The answer is #x in ]-oo, -3/2[ uu ]0, +oo[#

Explanation:

Let #f(x)=2x^2+3x=x(2x+3)#

We now, build the sign chart

#color(white)(aaaa)##x##color(white)(aaaaaa)##-oo##color(white)(aaaa)##-3/2##color(white)(aaaa)##0##color(white)(aaaa)##+oo#

#color(white)(aaaa)##2x+3##color(white)(aaaaaaa)##-##color(white)(aaaa)##+##color(white)(aaaa)##+#

#color(white)(aaaa)##x##color(white)(aaaaaaaaaaa)##-##color(white)(aaaa)##-##color(white)(aaaa)##+#

#color(white)(aaaa)##f(x)##color(white)(aaaaaaaaa)##+##color(white)(aaaa)##-##color(white)(aaaa)##+#

Therefore,

#f(x)>0# when #x in ]-oo, -3/2[ uu ]0, +oo[#
