How to solve this equation, I need help to know how to start off with the equation And to simplify it.

Vivian is right, Zaire, the equation you provided is not a quadratic since there is no x

^{2}term. Also, I assume a is a constant? Did you mean f(x) = 5ax - 17x^{2}+ 14a, or f(x) = 5a^{x}- 17^{2}+ 14a. Also are you solving for the case where f(x) = 0? Please clarify and we'll help.
