# How do you factor and solve 2x(x+3)=0?

Apr 28, 2018

#### Answer:

$\implies x = 0$
$\implies x = - 3$

#### Explanation:

$\implies 2 x \left(x + 3\right) = 0$

This equation is already factored. We can divide by $2$ to simplify a bit more:

$\implies x \left(x + 3\right) = 0$

We have two possible ways to satisfy this equation:

$\implies x = 0$
$\implies x + 3 = 0 \to x = - 3$

Hence, the two solutions are: $x = 0$ and $x = - 3$
