# How do you solve (4m+2)(3m-9)=0?

Feb 25, 2017

$m = - \frac{1}{2} \text{ or } x = 3$

#### Explanation:

We have the product of 2 factors equating to zero.

$\text{Thus if } a \times b = 0$

$\text{Then "a=0" or "b=0" or both must } = 0$

$\Rightarrow \left(4 m + 2\right) \left(3 m - 9\right) = 0$

$\Rightarrow 4 m + 2 = 0 \text{ or } 3 m - 9 = 0$

$\Rightarrow m = - \frac{1}{2} \text{ or } m = 3$
