@timo86m I don't think it helps to give the answer. Can you explain how you got those factors?

A:x = 0.8 or x = 0.75 C:x = 0.75 or x = 5 B:x = 3 or x = 1.25 D:x = 0.75 or x = 5

(x+5)*(4*x+3) if you not sure you can always expand this

Solve by factoring. 3x2  x + 2 = 0

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
3x2  x + 2 = 0 you actually mean 3x^2  x + 2 = 0

A:x = 0.5 or x = 0.33333 C:x = 1 or x = 0.66667 B:x = 0.33333 or x = 2 D:x = 1 or x = 0.66667

You guys how is this teaching and how is this learning? Please try to teach @Makayla43 and not just give the answer. And @Makayla43 you shouldn't be just looking for answers. I think freckles here was trying to teach you how to do this.

i teached, I said expand my factor if she doubts it lol.

But @timo86m how do you get the factors? Please explain that part so she will know how to do it.

4x2 + 23x + 15 = 0 number that up to 15 and product is 23

To factor is mostly guess work that is where I draw the line :)

timo86mBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
number that up to c and product is b coefficient. It is more important to show why it works then how to do something that is mostly guess work.
