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

(x6)(5x2)=? you can't solve x without it equaling zero or something.

5x^230x2x=12
5X(X6) 2(X6)
(5X2) (X6)
X=2/5 and x=6

*5x^230x2x+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.

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