i have trouble factoring this equation any time x^2 has a number before it i get confused and don't know how to factor
how would you solve this
3x^2+5x2

Find two factors for each end term (3,1 or 3,1) and (2,1 or 2,1).
Figure how they could be summed to get the middle term.
However, I could not do this. Do you have a typo?
3x^2 + 5x  2 = (3x1)(x+2)

I need to find the value of x. 9x^3 + 9x = 30x^2 It's confusing because apparently I have to do 9x^3 + 9x and then add the + 30x^2 to it, and then make it equal 0, so it ends up like this: 9x^3 + 9x + 30x^2 = 0 And afterward, I would …
