Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice how if you subtract 42 from both sides you get \[x^2  x  42 = 0\] Does that look like something familiar?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So in order to solve this, you need to set the right side equal to 0 by subtracting 42. \[x ^{2}x42\] Next you need to factor this. The factors of 42 that equal 1 are 6 and 7, so (x+6)(x7)
