how do you factor 2c^27c=5? I know that you have to change it to 2c^27c+5=0. Then you do this: (2c )(c ). But how do I find the two numbers? I can't think of one that works..

Since 5 is a prime number, it can only be factored into 1 and 5. To add to 7, they both need to be negative. Which factor needs to be multiplied by 2 to get the sum of 7 for the middle term?
I hope this helps. Thanks for asking. 
I don't think there is any factor that can be multipl;ied by 2 to get 7..
