    You need this to equal something in order to solve for x or you need an x to see what it equals.

    (x-6)(5x-2)=? you can't solve x without it equaling zero or something.

    =(2x-1)(3x+4) Do you understand how to factor these?

    5x^2-30x-2x=12 5X(X-6) -2(X-6) (5X-2) (X-6) X=2/5 and x=6

    *5x^2-30x-2x+12 not equals 12 on the first row

    @bangabus000 Thats technically incorrect, you can't bring over the 12 without knowing whats on the right side.

    I'm just saying, you can't solve for x if the right side is missing. it could be 0 but it could also be 100 or anything for that matter.

    ofcourse its 0 on the other side. i thought that was obvious since we were factoring.

    the x values are correct right?

    @chubbytots But using bangabus000's method, factoring by parts, is the best way to solve this type. @bangabus000 If it equals zero yes :)
