    We don't know what you are supposed to know, but here is methods of solving 12x^2-5x-7=0:

    Factorizing (either by inspection or using the rational root theorem):

    12x^2-5x-7=(x-1)(12x+7)=0

    so x=1 or x=-7/12.

    There have been several comments in different threads about this.

    You canNOT solve this as you have not given an actual equation.

    If you want this to be factored, simplified, etc. then say so! If not then finish the equation!
