# Thread: Finding; x

1. ## Finding; x

Gosh, this is so embarrassing! >_<

I have done these dozens of times! But I'm having a bad day, and can't seem to wrap my brain around it.
It's the whole squared x that is frustrating me.

So...

Solve for x;

x^2 - 15x + 36 = 0

Gah! I really don't know why my brain isn't comprehending this.

(x - 12)(x - 3) = 0
use the zero product property and finish it.

Now it all makes sense.

Cheers, mate!
