Hello,

I was practicing how to solve quadratic equations as part of some summer review, but then I stumbled across this equation...

1/2x(x+30)=2,700

I am supposed to solve the equation above using factoring, but I'm not quite sure how to do this. I tried solving it myself by first multiplying by 2 to eliminate the 1/2, and I eventually get x=-60 and x=90 as my answers, but I don't think those are correct.

Any clues?
