Answer:

#x^2-3/4x+1/4=0# or #4x^2 - 3x + 1 = 0#

Explanation:

This equation is already in standard form.

The standard form of a quadratic equation is #ax^2 + bx + c = 0#. Therefore you already have a standard form.

However, some exams and textbooks may require you to remove the fractions from the standard form (which I think is what your question wants).

To do this, you can multiply each term by #4# giving
#4x^2 - 3x + 1 = 0#.

However, this simplifying step isn't necessary unless the question states that.

Hope that makes sense!
