Answer:

#x = 0 or x = 10#

Explanation:

When working with a quadratic, check first to see if it can be factorised.

#x^2 -10x= 0 " x is a common factor"#

#x(x-10)= 0#

If two factors multiply to give 0, one of them must be equal to 0

Either #x = 0, " or "x - 10 =0#

#" If " x- 10 = 0, rArr x = 10#

So the two possible solutions for #x# are #x =0 or x= 10#
