    c^2-10c=0 c(c-10) = 0 See where to go next?

    c(c-10) = 0 breaks up to c = 0 or c-10 = 0

    solve c-10 = 0 for c

    Important step: If \[ a\cdot b=0 \]Then at least one of \(a, b\) must be zero.

    10 - 10 = 0 @jim_thompson5910

    so c-10 = 0 means that c = 10

    so c = 0 or c = 10
