Solve the equation. x(5x+23)+26=0 I distributed the x to get 5x^2+23x+26=0 But I do not know how to get further than that.

    Hello @Jlynn89 ! Sorry for the late reply, I saw you shared your question on twitter. a pair of factors for 26 is 2 and 13 if the 5 multiplies with the 2 = 10 then 10+13 gets you the 23 in the middle :) (x+2)(5x+13) see? I hope this helped :3
