Solve the equation 2x squared - 7x = 0

Jan 17th, 2015

2x^2 - 7x = 0

Factor out the x:

x(2x - 7) = 0

Now you set both factors equal to 0:

x = 0 and 2x - 7 = 0

For 2x - 7 = 0, add 7 to both sides:

2x = 7

Divide both sides by 2:

x = 7/2


Your two answers are: x = 0 and x = 7/2


Hope this helps!
