Here is the answer my friend

x ( x - 4 ) = 0 - Oct 27th 2005, 05:13 PMJameson
Hey! He can do it himself! Answering it for him won't help him on a test.

Ben - (I assume that's your name), how about this question?

Solve the following quadratic by factoring:

$\displaystyle x^2+8x$ and

$\displaystyle x^2-4$ - Oct 27th 2005, 05:16 PMNatasha
Well yes but I think sometimes its better to give the answer... when I get the answer I always study it before writing it down, so I understand it!

x (x+8) = 0

and

(x-2) (x+2) = 0

;)
