## Ammarah one year ago How to simplify this: 2x^2 +5x-3

1. Nnesha

factor or find solution ? you can use quadratic formula there are like 4 way to solve for x or factor the quadratic equation i'll would like to do headphone method :P where you have to find two numbers when you multiply them you should get product of AC and when you add or subtract them you should get middle term a,b,c values are $\huge\rm Ax^2+Bx+C=0$ a=leading coefficient b=middle term c=constant term |dw:1439751908737:dw|

2x^2 +5x-3 = 2x^2 + 6x - x - 3 now factor by grouping

3. triciaal

This is already in its simple form. there are no more like terms to combine. If you make it into an equation then you will be able solve using one of the methods above.

4. welshfella

= 2x(x + 3) - 1(x + 3) = (2x - 1)(x + 3)
