Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not clear what that tangent part means, but if it is \[x(x+5)=2(x+10)\] then when you multiply out you get \[x^2+5x=2x+20\]which is a quadratic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1set equal to zero \[x^2+3x20=0\] then the quadratic formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is this the original question \[x(x+5)=2(2+10)\]??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if so, then it is just \[x^2+5x=24\]so \[x^2+5x24=0\] a totally different equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this one is much easier factor as \[(x3)(x+8)=0\] and now you can find the zeros easily
