lol then how come you have to do these questions?
anonymous

oh. okay. Then you really shouldn't be doing this sort of problem. Let me post a couple of links so that you can first learn some basic algebra and then come back here.

oh. You really should learn how to do these questions. They're not hard ^^ Here's your answer with explanations: 12x² - 1 = -x [[move everything to one side and get the equation into the general form ax²+bx+c =0]] 12x² + x - 1 = 0 [[You're looking for 2 numbers, m and n, with the conditions that m+n = b and mn = ac. So in this case, two numbers that add to be 1 and multiply to be -12. 4 and -3 work, so split x into 4x and -3x]] 12x² + 4x - 3x - 1 = 0 [[Factorize by grouping in pairs]] 4x(3x + 1) - (3x + 1) = 0 [[Factorise (3x+1) out]] (4x - 1)(3x + 1) = 0 [[Solve]] x = 1/4 or x = -1/3
