# What is the solution set of 2x(x+3)-5(x+3)=0?

Sep 5, 2016

$x = \frac{5}{2} \text{ }$ or $\text{ } x = - 3$

#### Explanation:

$\left(2 x - 5\right) \left(x + 3\right) = 0$

This means that

$2 x - 5 = 0 \text{ }$ or $\text{ } x + 3 = 0$

which gets you

$x = \frac{5}{2} \text{ }$ or $\text{ } x = - 3$
