Q:

solve for x in the equation x^2+10x+12=36

Accepted Solution

A:
i am going to put the all math work for the answer of this question, but if you need an explanation for how i got each step let me know and i will provide that for you
x^2 +10x + 12 = 36
x^2 + 10x + 12 - 36 = 0
x^2 +12x - 2x - 24 = 0
x(x + 12) - 2(x +12) = 0
(x + 12) x (x - 2) = 0
x + 12 = 0
x - 2 = 0
x = -12
x = 2
your answer for the first x is x = -12, and your answer for the second x will be
x = 2Β 
let me know if you have any further questions
