How do I solve this quadratic equation?
#6x^2 + 7x +2=0#
can be factored into a binomial,
By setting a factor to zero we can solve for an x value
We can solve this quadratic with the strategy factoring by grouping. Here, we will rewrite the
This is equivalent to the following:
Notice, I only rewrote
We can factor a
We now set both factors equal to zero to get:
Our factors are in blue. Hope this helps!
We ask ourselves: Do any of the factors of
We now rewrite the equation like the following:
Let's separate the terms like this:
For better understanding, we let
Let's factor each term.
Let's solve each case.
Those two are our answers!
