# Question #f0544

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

You want to get all terms on the same side, with the term with the highest degree being positive

So the new equation looks like

Since you cannot factor anything, you have to use the AC method (multiplying the A times the C). You then have to figure out what two numbers multiply to your product of your AC, and add up to your B

Those numbers are

Now put them in their respective pairs

Now factor out the GCF (Greatest Common Factor) possible, your two sets of parenthesis should be *exactly the same!* Your new equation is

Since there is an imaginary *1* in front of the second set of parenthesis, don't forget about it! Now put the GCF's in one set of parentheses and the current set of parentheses in another.

Set each set of parentheses equal to zero, and solve for

P.S. - To check if you're right, you ca FOIL out the binomials and see if you get the original problem, if so, congratulations, if not, maybe try again :D!
