I need to solve for x, but i have no clue what to do first. Can someone help me in the right direction please? It's been a while since i've solved a problem like this one.

Here's the problem:

2ix²+8x+5i=0.

The thing that's confusing me is the x² and the x...

Use the quadratic equation: a=2i , b=8 & c=5i.
You should get 2i ±i(√[26])/2
