Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We had to reorder them Solving for variable 'x'. Factor a trinomial. (19 + 2x)(2 + 1x) = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplifying 19 + 2x = 0 Solving 19 + 2x = 0 19 + 19 + 2x = 0 + 19 Combine like terms: 19 + 19 = 0 0 + 2x = 0 + 19 2x = 0 + 19 Combine like terms: 0 + 19 = 19 2x = 19 Divide each side by '2'. x = 9.5 Simplifying x = 9.5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.02 + 1x = 0 Solving 2 + 1x = 0 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '2' to each side of the equation. 2 + 2 + 1x = 0 + 2 Combine like terms: 2 + 2 = 0 0 + 1x = 0 + 2 1x = 0 + 2 Combine like terms: 0 + 2 = 2 1x = 2 Divide each side by '1'. x = 2 Simplifying x = 2
