Solve for the roots (x). Given is to be solved as quadratic equation, not as rational expression :-)

First, simplify the given equation:

m + m -  \frac{2}{m} - \frac{1}{m} + 2 + 1 = 0

2m -   \frac{3}{m} + 3 = 0

2m(m)- \frac{3(m)}{m} + 3(m)=0

2m²+3m-3 = 0

This equation can not be solved using  completing the square and factoring because there are no rational factors.

Using Quadratic Formula the answer is:

x = - \frac{3}{4} + \frac{1}{4}  \sqrt{33}


x = - \frac{3}{4} - \frac{1}{4}  \sqrt{33}
