what did you learn?
Im confused because the -2 has to be negative but it cant because -3+-2 is -5 and it has to be -5x
This is factoring
now I am totally confused because I really don't see the question
Its solving by factoring, i dont know how to explain
all it says is solve
its just confusing
i can help you with factoring
i can factor, but the problem is confusing because i have to get something that multiplies to -2 and something that gives me -5x and then 3x^2
3x^2 - 5x - 2 = 0
|dw:1441518212337:dw| not sure if this making sense lol
identify a, b, c
a = 3 b = -5 c = -2
if you calm down I can walk you through then answer any questions or
identify a, b and c
a = 3 b = -5 and c = -2 right?
what is a* c
what are the factors af a*c that add up to b and pay attention to the signs
-6 + 1
now rewrite the original but split b into its components
separate into 2 groups that will have common factors and factor each of the 2 groups
the 2 groups have a common factor use the distributive property and rewrite
i understand it now! thanks :)
thanks for your help!
you are welcome (as long as you calm down)
math is fun keep practicing and it becomes very easy
all the best
I will :) ty.
