Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from 3x^2+6x=0 we get x = 3x^2 / 6 = x^2 / 2 subtituting x = x^2/2 to x^2+6x+8=0 x^2 + 6(x^2/2) +8 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm assuming you want to find x for each separate equation. For: x^2+6x+8=0 (x+4)(x+2)=0 x=4 and x=2 For: 3x^2+6x=0 3x(x+2)=0 3x=0 x=0 and x=2 for (x+2)
