Have you considered solving: 150=3(x^2+10x)/40

for the final step of the equation would it be 6,000+33x^3?

Well, then that is what you will have to do. You should break out your best Quadratic Equation solver that you have stored in your head.

because when i do it all i get 6000+3x^2+30x and i do not know how to solve that. Could you please explain

I might do this: 150=3(x^2+10x)/40 50=(x^2+10x)/40 2000=(x^2+10x) x^2 + 10x - 2000 = 0 10^2 - 4(1)(-2000) = 100 + 8000 = 8100 sqrt(9100) = 90 Thus, (-10 + 90)/2 = 80/2 = 40 and we are done. No need to worry about (-10 - 90)/2 because that is negative and doesn't concern us in this problem.

Look carefully. Division by 3.
