21x^2 - 83x + 34 = 0 i know i will get two values of ex by factorization. but i am not being able to middle term factorize it.

Try the quadratic formula.

For it to be factorable over the integers the discriminant would need to be a perfect square. ... and 4033 is not a perfect square.
Relatively few quadratics can be factored with integer coefficients. "Complete the square" or use the quadratic formula instead.
if then -- hope it'll help --
