Which linear technique would be best to solve this problem? 3x/4 + 6 = 12
And which quadratic equation would be best for 4x^2=0
Thanks for any suggestions.

I'm confused do you want an answer or what to know what technique would be best?
1. I suggest using the common factor and canceling out the bottom number.
Therefore, the common factor is 4. Multuply each one by 4 such as 3x/4 and 6 and also 12. As a result, the 4 crosses out.
> (4) 3x/4 + (4) 6 = (4)  12
> 3x + 24 = /48
> 3x =  72
> x =  24
2. You have to divide by 4 and x^2 = 0 and then the square root of 0 is always 0. 
I would/could have done the work. I just didn't know which technique is best. The name of the technique. Thank you for your help!
