Answer:

#x=0# and #x=9/4#

Explanation:

We have a second degree term, so this is beginning to look like a quadratic. Let's subtract #9x# from both sides to get

#4x^2-9x=0#

Both terms have an #x# in them, so we can factor that out to get

#x(4x-9)=0#

Setting both factors equal to zero, we get

#x=0# and #x=9/4#

Hope this helps!
