find the zeroes of the equation: x^2+x6=y

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

is it using the FOIL method?

correct.

so i know its foil, but i'm not sure how to foil this one out.

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? 
uhhh. no. i can't think of anything.

how about 3 and 2?
So you have (x+3)(x2) = 0
