I have this equation:

y = -3x^2 - 2x + 5

How do I go about factoring this like:

y = (x + constant)(x + constant)

I tried doing this:

0 = -3x^2 - 2x + 5

(0)-1/3 = (-3x^2 - 2x + 5)-1/3

0 = x^2 + 2/3 - 5/3

I can't factor this:

x^2 + 2/3 - 5/3

(Trying to find the x-intercepts of this equation.)

Thank you.
