Start by factoring the equation. Do you know how to do that?

is it using the FOIL method?

OK. x^2 + x - 6:

Start with (x )(x )

We have to figure out 2 numbers when MULTIPLIED by each other gives -6, and when ADDED together gives 1. can you figure out these?

how about 3 and -2?

So you have (x+3)(x-2) = 0
