Best Answer

(3x+5)(x-2)

x=2

x=-5/3

you separate it into two brackets like above.

as you see -2 and 5 times to -10

3x and x times to make 3x2

3x and -2 times to make -6x

x and 5 time to make 5x

add them all together and you should get:

3x2 -x -10

you have to work back

or you can use the quadratic formula

where: ax2 + bx + c =0

or you can also complete the square, but i can't do that srry.
