10x'2squared' - 13x=3

WORK DONE :

10x'squared' - 13x =3

(10x-9)(x-4)=3

10x-9=3 = 10x=12 ; x-4=3 = x=7

Apparently your classroom lecture and your textbook omitted amarshall1432 said:10x'squared' - 13x =3

(10x-9)(x-4)=3

To replace that missing information, please review the property in at least one

Also, it appears that your class didn't cover factoring, so please study some lessons on

Once you have the necessary background material, please attempt the exercise again. If you get stuck, or are unsure of your solution, please reply showing all of your steps and reasoning. Thank you!

10x'2squared' - 13x=3

WORK DONE :

10x'squared' - 13x =3

(10x-9)(x-4)=3 <-- How did you get here from above

If you multiply out (10x - 9)(x - 4),

do you get 10x^2 - 13x?

I get

10x^2 - 49x + 36 totally different from 10x^2 - 13x

10x-9=3 = 10x=12 ; x-4=3 = x=7
