## a123 4 years ago Solve for x: (3x - 1)(3x - 1) = 0

1. a123

is it just x = -1/3?

2. rjswagger123

one is the answer use foil

3. a123

the problem was originally $9x^2 - 6x + 1 = 0$

4. a123

i factored it

5. anonymous

you definitely don't want to multiply out after you factor! just write $3x-1=0$ $x=\frac{1}{3}$ and be done
