(x+5)(x-8) = 0 x = -5 is a solution (makes the first factor zero) x = 8 is a solution (makes the second factor zero)

Another way to do this: Find the sum of the solutions. That is 3. Find the product of the solutions. That is - 40. Now, reverse the sign of the sum of the solutions. That is - 3. Then, your equation is \[x^{2} - 3x -40=0\]
