Erm. Can you give me more Hint pls. I just simply cant make x an isolated variable by itself. It has to get stuck with one of the variables.
Right after you multiplied each side by C (and divided by m if wanted), expand the right-hand side, what do you recognize ? Do you know the quadratic formula ?
