# How do you solve (2x+4)(x-3)=0?

Feb 5, 2017

$x = - 2 , x = 3$

#### Explanation:

We have a product of factors equating to zero. Hence one or both of the factors must be zero.

$\text{solve } 2 x + 4 = 0 \Rightarrow 2 x = - 4 \Rightarrow x = - 2$

$\text{solve } x - 3 = 0 \Rightarrow x = 3$

$\Rightarrow x = - 2 \text{ or "x=3" are the solutions}$
