values of x of factored equation (roots)

i was trying to use the quadratic formula and it seems like my answer never match on the given answer provided.

( x -2) ( 2x - 1) = 5

i also tried (x -2) = 5 | (2x - 1) = 5 but still it not equal to the provided answers or root like 3 and -1/2

little guide on here ... thanks
