Each has to equal 0, so x-5=0;x+55=0;5x-1=0


So the answer ends up being 5,55,1/5 get it??? or do you need more help???

what you need to do is seperate all of the 3 problems equal to zero and then you can factor. :D

you would need to set each parenthesis to zero like this~

x-5=0 x+55=0 5x-1=0

then you would just solve it =)
