Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

(w^2 -  3w) -  10  = 0 

 w^2-3w  -  10

then trying to factor out split the middle term

w^2- 5w + 2w - 10

then factor out

(w + 2) • (w - 5)  = 0

w+2=0....... therefore, w=-2

w-5= 0........therefore w= 5

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
