Given:

Given quadratic equation is $3 \sqrt{2} x^{2}-5 x-\sqrt{2}=0$.

To do:

We have to find the roots of the given quadratic equation.

Solution:

$3 \sqrt{2} x^{2}-5 x-\sqrt{2}=0$

$3 \sqrt{2} x^{2}-(6 x-x)-\sqrt{2}=0$

$3 \sqrt{2} x^{2}-6 x+x-\sqrt{2}=0$

$3 \sqrt{2} x^{2}-3 \sqrt{2}(\sqrt{2})x+x-\sqrt{2}=0$

$3 \sqrt{2} x(x-\sqrt{2})+1(x-\sqrt{2})=0$

$(x-\sqrt{2})(3 \sqrt{2} x+1)=0$

$x-\sqrt{2}=0$ or $3 \sqrt{2} x+1=0$

$x =\sqrt{2}$ or $x=-\frac{1}{3 \sqrt{2}}$

$x =\sqrt{2}$ or $x=-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{3\sqrt{2}\times \sqrt2}$

$x =\sqrt{2}$ or $x=-\frac{\sqrt{2}}{6}$

Hence, the roots of the given quadratic equation are $\sqrt{2}, -\frac{\sqrt{2}}{6}$.
