f(x) = -2x^2 + 12x + 12(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was able to express it in standard form and find the maximum value, but I can't seem to get the x-intercepts

I got -2x^2 + 12x + 12 = 0

-2 (x^2 - 6x + 6) = 0

does that mean I need to use the quadratic formula or did I do something wrong?
