    not quite. try getting the x's on the same side first, then you should be able to factor it (I'm assuming you're working on factoring.

    If you can't factor this is gonna be tricky, you should try to look up something on it, see if you can understand the idea. It'll be a good exercise on how to research a math concept. Here's a start: http://www.purplemath.com/modules/simpfact.htm try to find Khan videos on it too.

    Well then he didn't know that you had not yet studied factoring, so ignore it I guess and come back to it when you get there in khan. It's definitely a whole idea by itself, you will have to devote a fair amount of attention to it at first. Gets easy soon though :)
