# How do you solve 3x^2-15x=0 ?

Apr 2, 2016

The solutions are
color(blue)(x=0
color(blue)(x=5

#### Explanation:

$3 {x}^{2} - 15 x = 0$

$3 x$ is common to both terms of the L.H.S:

$3 x \left(x - 5\right) = 0$

Equating each of the factors to zero we obtain the solutions:
3x= 0 , x = 0/3, color(blue)(x=0

x- 5= 0 , color(blue)(x=5
