How do you explicitly solve for x in terms of y using this quadratic formula?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = 2x^{2}+ x

I need to solve for x in order to find the inverse fxn. I know how to factor, but after that I'm stuck.

Any suggestions?

* And what about polynomials of a higher order, like x^{3}+ 2x^{2}+ x, or something similar?
