    solve ? if you want to solve you need an equation (with =0) do you want to factor this ?

    Compare your quadratic equation with \(ax^2+bx+c=0\) find \[a=...?\\b=...?\\c=...?\\\] \[ \\ \sqrt{b^2-4ac}=...?\] then the two roots of x are: \(\huge{x_{1,2}=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\)

    b =-20 right ? so, -b =+20
