Is the equation x2-x-6=0? (for some reason that's what I assumed it was since I didn't see a sign in between the exponent and the 2nd x.
If so, you hafta factor....
(x-3)(x+2) is equal to x2-x-6 you can figure it out by foiling the (x-3)(x+2).
after you foil you get x2+2x-3x-6 which is the same as x2-x-6
then you have two terms that equal zero
you have x-3=0 AND x+2=0
then you have to isolate the x's by adding three to both sides of the first term you get x=3 and by subtracting the 2 from both sides of the second term you get x=-2
If the equation is x2 + x - 6 = 0 then it factors out to be (x+3)(x-2) and then the answers would b x=-3 or x=2
does that make sense?
