I cannot remember how to work this problem but here is what I think I am suppose to do.
The problem states "Solve and give the solutions x=
5x+x(x-2)=0
do I mulitply
5x+x^2 -2x = 0
3x + x^2 = 0
3x - 3x + x^2 = 0 - 3x
This is the point were I feel I am on the wrong track can you help?
the problem states find the x- intercept
f(x)=5x+x(x-2).
this is what I have done
5x+x^2-2x
x^2+3x
x(x+3)
now were do I go from here to find the x-intercept?
Yes it asks for the x- intercept; it can be in theses forms;(type an ordered pair, or simply your answer, type an exact answer using radicals as needed, express complex numbers in terms if i, Use a comma to seperate answers as needed)
but I have double checked and it says the x-intercepts? I already have the solutions as (0,-3)
