# How do you solve the equation 8x^2-11x=0 by factoring?

See explanation.

#### Explanation:

$8 {x}^{2} - 11 x = 0$

Both terms on the left side have $x$, so it is one factor:

$x \times \left(8 x - 11\right) = 0$

$x = 0 \vee 8 x - 11 = 0$

$x = 0 \vee 8 x = 11$

$x = 0 \vee x = \frac{11}{8}$

$x = 0 \vee x = 1 \frac{3}{8}$
