[00:00:00] find the roots

ELIZABETH C (Tutor)
[00:00:27] hello. how can i help you?

Guest (Customer) (Customer)
[00:00:57] Hi I need help going through the steps to solve this equation

ELIZABETH C (Tutor)
[00:01:21] ok. do you have any idea where to start?

Guest (Customer) (Customer)
[00:01:33] no

ELIZABETH C (Tutor)
[00:02:37] anytime you are asked to find the roots, you want to 1)make sure it is set = to 0, which it is... and 2) factor.

Guest (Customer) (Customer)
[00:03:23] ok so we can factor x

ELIZABETH C (Tutor)
[00:03:34] yes. can you do that on the board?
[00:04:19] now, set each factor = 0
[00:05:39] good, the first one is finished because it is already solved for x. that is 1 answer. to find your 2nd answer (or root) solve the second factor for x
[00:07:02] very good. you are finished. i will box both answers.

Guest (Customer) (Customer)
