2x^2-12x+32=x^2 how would I solve this by factoring?

  • algebra 2 honors -

    2x^2-12x+32=x^2
    x^2 - 12x + 32 = 0
    (x-8)(x-4) = 0
    x = 8 or x = 4

  • algebra 2 honors -

    2x^2 - 12x + 32 = x^2

    Move x^2 to the left side and change sign then put zero after equal sign..

    2x^2 - x^2 - 12x + 32 = 0
    x^2 - 12x + 32 = 0

    (x - 4)(x - 8) = 0

    x - 4 = 0 x - 8 = 0
    x - 4 + 4 = 0 + 4 x - 8 + 8 = 0 + 8
    x = 4 x = 8

    x = 4,8
