    2x^2 - 3x - 9 break down the middle term 2x^2 + 6x - 3x - 9 group them (2x^2 + 6x) - (3x + 9) factor out 2x(x + 3) - 3(x+3) do you see it now?

    \[x^2-3x-9=0\] \[x^2-6x+3x-9=0\] \[2x(x-3)+3(x-3)=0\] now you try to simplify.

    you can use the quadratic formula i.e \[-b \pm \sqrt{b ^{2}-4ac}/2a\] here a=2 b=-3 c=-9 put the values of a, b and c in equation and you'll get your answer

    factor of 8x^3-216 \[8x(x^2-27)=0\] \[8x=0 \] \[x=0\] or \[x^2-27=0\] \[x^2=27\] \[x=\sqrt{27}\]
