Quadratic equation x(x-5)=7(x+1) Asked by fatemeh332 on 12 Oct 04:32 Last updated by anonymous on 03 Dec 03:46

Are you sure this question is correct? When you start to work it out you get x squared -12-7=0 THis is not factorable.

x(x-5)=7(x+1) 1. distributive property: 2x2 - 5x = 7x + 7 2. combine like terms 2x2 = 2x +7 3. move the equation to the left of the = 2x2 + 2x + 7 Hope this was what you needed
