Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1divide by (x3) 9and that gives you x3=0 solution right of, leaving you with x+2=x3 which is ....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright (x3)^2 is same as (x3)(x3 )\[\huge\rm (x+2)(x3)=(x3)(x3)\] you can divide both sides by x3 and then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, but again as I noted, when you divide by x3, you will have that x3=0 is also a solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You don't have to divide by x3 By observation, x+2=x3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is from dividing by x3, and I am sure you would get that solution if you were to just solve it in another way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Xes x=3 is a solution but you don't need to divide anything to get that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ahh i see. you can distribute the parentheses FOL it (x3)(x3) and (x3)(x+2)
