*simplify by combining like terms, if possible. then, remove the GCF and factor fully.
2x^221x+36+x^2
=3x^221x+36
...i'm not sure what to do after that, could you help and show the steps please

math 
Ana,
3x^221x+36 GCF: 3, so divide the whole thing by 3.
x^27x+12
(What two #s add up to 7 and multiplied equal 12? 3 and 4)
[x^24x]  [3x+12]
x(x4)  3(x4)
(x4)(x3)=0
x4= 4 x3= 3 Answer X=3 and 4 
math 
Reiny,
I thought it said, factor fully.
You had
3x^2  21x + 36 , which is correct
= 3(x^2  7x + 12)
= 3(x4)(x3)
nothing was said about "solving" the equation, since there was no equation.
