# How do you solve 7x^2 - 14x = 0 by factoring?

Aug 12, 2015

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

 color(blue)(x=2

#### Explanation:

7x^2−14x=0

Here color(blue)(7x is common to both terms of the expression:

color(blue)(7x)(x−2)=0

Now we equate each of the two factors to zero , to find the solutions.

7x=0 , color(blue)(x=0

x-2=0 , color(blue)(x=2
