    x = [- b ± √ (b² - 4ac) ] / 2a

    For equal roots b² = 4ac

    25 = 12 q

    q = 25/12

    roots are equal when discriminant is zero

    use that

    If roots of quadratic equation ax^2 + bx + c = 0 are equal then discriminant b^2 -4ac = 0 OR b^2= 4ac

    so according to question a = 3 , b = -5 , c = q

    so b^2 = 4ac

    (-5)^2 = 4(3)(q)

    q = 25/12
