x^2=11x10 ?

Where did you get 110 from exactly?

Good question. I don' see no steenking 110.
However, if you want to solve the equation above, collect everything to one side:
x^2 + 11x + 10 = 0
(x+1)(x+10) = 0
so, if x = 1 or x = 10, the equation is satisfied.
check:
(1)^2 =? 11(1)  10
1 =? 11  10
yes
(10)^2 =? 11(10)  10
100 =? 110  10
yes.
Ah. Now I see a 110. It's 11*10
