`[[x,2,1]][[-2,-1,2],[-1,0,2],[2,7,1]][[x],[-1],[2]]=0`

We need to solve the above equation.

Let's first multiply `[[-2,-1,2],[-1,0,2],[2,7,1]][[x],[-1],[2]]`.

`[[x,2,1]][[-2x+5],[-x+4],[2x-5]]=0`

Now we have scalar product of two vectors.

`-2x^2+5x-2x+8+2x-5=0`

`-2x^2+5x+3=0`

When we solve this quadratic equation we get

`x_1=1/2` and `x_2=-3`.

**Solutions to** **the equation are** `x_1=1/2` **and** `x_2=-3.`
