    start with given equation:

    2x^2 + 5x - 3 = 0

    factor to get:

    (2x-1)(x+3) = 0

    solve to get:

    x= 1/2, x = -3 The answer is C.

    2x2 + 5x - 3 = 0, it is not true that (2x - 1) = 0 or (x + 3) = 0

    x=1/2,x=-3 is the answere

    I'll even work it out for you

    2x^2+5x-3=0

    (2x-1)(x+3)=0

    x=1/2 x=-3

    C!!

    Maybe you should get out of the house. If you drive, take a walk in a park, sit on a bench, and read a book or feed the ducks if there are any. If you are too young to drive, or don't have license, then ride a bike and enjoy the weather. Of course, only if it isn't too cold or wet outside. There are many things to enjoy doing besides watching tv or playing video games. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy those too, but I find occasionally that when I get bored, it is usually when I am at home, and get out.
