solve the equation by factoring: 25x^2+30x+8=0

25x^2+30x+8=0

(4+5x)(2+5x)=0 --- Set equation up as a trinomial

Now solve each equation.

4+5x=0

5x=0-4 --- Divide each side by 5 to get rid of the x

x = -0.8

2+5x=0

5x=0-2 --- Divide each side by 5 to get rid of the x

x = -0.4

Answers (-0.8, -0.4)
