Why would the question be writen with only term "x" if it is used to make 2 different numbers = 0? Like y would it not b writen

__6x-5__

2x(y+4)

X= 0

y= -4 instead of "x" = 2 different numbers. - Jun 5th 2007, 07:09 PMThePerfectHacker
There are two possible values for $\displaystyle x$.

For example,

Solve: $\displaystyle x^2-1=0$.

If you factor,

$\displaystyle (x+1)(x-1)=0$

Making factors equal to zero we find that,

$\displaystyle x=-1$ or $\displaystyle x=1$.

Those are the two possible values for x which solve this.

Same here, it does not mean that there has to be only one value for x there can be two (or more). - Jun 5th 2007, 07:16 PMlostone
