I'm not sure but I think c = \( \frac { 10 }{ 3 } \) because a quadratic function should be in a form of \( f\left( x \right) =a{ x }^{ 2 }+bx+c \) and if the exponent of 3x is not 1 then if you square the expression, the result will not be a quadratic function so it should be 1

\( 3c-9=1\\ 3c=10\\ c=\frac { 10 }{ 3 } \)

Once again. I am not sure and I am open for corrections :)
