How do you solve 2x(x-5)=0?

Jun 14, 2017

$x = 0 , 5$

Explanation:

There are two solutions.

$2 x \left(x - 5\right) = 0$

Divide both sides by $2$.

$x \left(x - 5\right) = 0$

Find the values for $x$.

$x = 0$ and $x - 5 = 0$.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

$x - 5 = 0$

Add $5$ to both sides.

$x = 5$
