  1. Set each equation equal to 0.
    Try to factor.
    Set each factor equal to 0.
    Solve for x.

    I'll pick one of your problems to show you how to solve.

    Let's try problem #2:
    12x^2 + 30x = -12

    Set the equation equal to 0:
    12x^2 + 30x + 12 = 0

    Try to factor:
    (6x + 3)(2x + 4) = 0

    Set each factor equal to 0:
    6x + 3 = 0
    2x + 4 = 0

    I'll let you finish this to solve for x.
    (Hint: there will be two possible solutions.)

    Try this technique with your other problems.

    I hope this will help get you started.

    can someone correct this for me or help me. 6x^2y^3+ 9x^2y^3 divided by 3x^2y^2 my solving and answer is: 15 x x y y y ---------- = 5y 3 x x y y Looks good to me. I've never thought of showing x^2y^3 as xxyyy. That a neat wrinkle.

    There are two solutions to | 16x - 5 | = 3. The greatest solution is ___. Since the expression, 16x - 5, can be either positive or negative, solve for both. 16x - 5 = 3 16x = 8 x = .5 -(16x - 5) = 3 -16x + 5 = 3 -16x = -2 x = 1/8
