Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve it, you must get everything to one side so the equation equals zero. 6b^2  5b  4 = 0 Then factor it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do you know if you use trial and error, bottoms up, or what method you usually use?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Foil would be to check it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Factoring is taking it apart. We'll use trial and error. Multiply the first and last numbers and you get 24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What multiplies to be 24 and adds to be 5 (the middle term)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, 3 and 8. So you know your "inner" and outter terms have to equal 3 and

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.06 factors to be 2 * 3 or 1 * 6 and 4 can be 2 * 2 or 4 *1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You know you have to have "3" for one of your numbers, so you know it's set up like this.... (3x + ____) (2x + ____)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since you know you need a 3. that last blank must be a positive 1. (3x + ___)(2x + 1) . That makes your outter terms equal 3.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Therefore your inner terms must equal 8. So what would need to go in that blank?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yup. So that gives you (3x  4)(2x + 1) Then to check it, just FOIL it back together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait shouldnt the answer come out to be x= and then like 2 fractions cause on the last one that i did that asked for the equation to be solved and check solution it came out to be n=1/3 and 2/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, just set each ( ) equal to zero and solve. The answers should be x = 4/3 and x = 1/2
