Answers(to 3 d.p.): 0.924 and 14.077
Since you have
You transfer the numbers on the left hand side to the right in order to get the normal order:
If you add 10 on both sides, you eliminate the -10 on the left and bring it to the right.
Do the same for the 8x until you get 0.
So now that you have everything in order, you can input the coefficients into the quadratic formula:
