Solve the following equation:

k2 + 4k = 0

By factoring and By using the quadratic formula

Can someone please help me to understand how to this problem...I do not understand the steps to get the correct answer.
Thanks!!!

  • algebra -

    2k + 4k = 0

    First, combine like terms. In this case, the k's:

    6k = 0

    Simplify by dividing by 6 on both sides:

    6k/6 = k

    0/6 = 0

    So,
    k = 0
