The solutions for the equation are
We can Split the Middle Term of this expression to factorise it.
In this technique, if we have to factorise an expression like
After trying out a few numbers we get
Factorising the expression:
We now equate the factors to zero to obtain the solutions:
#3x + 2 = 0, color(green)(x = -2/3#
#x +1 = 0, color(green)(x = -1#
