## shubham1 3 years ago Solve 3x2 = 12x.

1. shubham1

I need 2 solutions

2. philips13

can you set it to 0 and factor it?

3. mayayamfundo

|dw:1332831788209:dw|is it like this?

4. shubham1

yes

5. Akshay_Budhkar

\[3x^2=12x \therefore 3x^2-12x=0 \therefore 3x(x-4)=0 \therefore x=0 or x=4\]

6. mayayamfundo

|dw:1332831859386:dw|if so, you will only have one solution. Which will look a bit something like this

7. apoorvk

NO NO No... dont cancel out x like that you ll miss the solution... bring them to one side and then take common!

8. shubham1

whats the answer apoorvk ill give a medal

9. apoorvk

10. shubham1

is that x = 0, x = 4

11. apoorvk

you dont need to offer medals, give them if you like, shubham... we do this to explain solutions to people and help 'em out, not to give them just the answers!! :)

12. apoorvk

yeah that is it.

13. shubham1

woo!

14. mayayamfundo

wait, is that an X between 3 and 2 on the left or its a multiplication sign?

15. mayayamfundo

You should have written it as 3x^2=12x. It got me confuzed, do that next time
