I need help on how to set the following to zero;
12x^2 + 6x - 6
Can someone walk me through this?
on the other hand (since it is hardly likely that what you asked for was what you were actually asked to do--you should type the question in its entirety!), if you want to solve for , that is a different story. try dividing through by 6 then factorizing. can you proceed?
the common factor of 6. Then you'll need to factor the quadratic, set the factors equal to zero, and then solve the resulting linear equations; or else you'll need to apply the Quadratic Formula.
