    Not really I mean I know that you have to substitute the x values for each of them but when I did it none of them worked

    \[10x-12=2x^2\] becomes \[2x^2-10x-12=0\]

    \[2(x^2-5x+6)=2(x-3)(x-2)=0\] Know how to solve for x?

    anything multiplied by a zero equals zero. so set anything equal to zero.
