    4x2 = 12x + 40 4x^2 - 12x - 40 = 0 Get rid of 4 by taking commons 4(x^2 -3x - 10) = 0 Divide 4 on both sides (x^2 -3x - 10) = 0 Now factor: x^2 - 3x -10 =0 x^2 -5x + 2x - 10 = 0 take commons: x(x-5) +2(x-5) = 0 (x+2)(x-5) = 0 solve them for Zero: x = -2 x = 5

    taking 4 common on both sides.. x^2 = 3x + 10 x^2 - 3x - 10 = 0 now factorize x^2 -5x + 2x - 10 = 0 x(x-5) +2(x-5) = 0 (x-5)(x+2)=0 Either (x-5)=0 this gives x=5 Or (x+2)=0 this gives x= -2
