Trying to rewrite a quadratic equation in the form a(x - h)^2 + k. The equation I'm trying to rewrite is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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

Not looking for an answer, just looking for how to do this (I don't know how to do it if it has rationals in it). Thank you.
