No matter what number you multiply the entire equation by, it will equal the same thing because zero times ANYTHING is zero, so

an equivalent equation with the SAME solutions would be

2(2x^2 + x - 3 = 0) = 4x^2 + 4x - 6 = 0

Thanks!!! So would you use FOIL to figure out the rest?

No, you would FACTOR the quadratic to find the zeros and solve.
