arrow_back Return to Factoring Quadratics

We will start by factoring the left-hand side, and then we will solve the equation.

Factoring

Consider the left-hand side of the equation. Since the leading coefficient is to factor this expression we will find two numbers whose sum is and whose product is As we see above, the sum of and is and their product is Therefore, we will rewrite as
Factor out

Solving

To solve this equation, we will apply the Zero Product Property.
