A quadratic equation is of the form ax^2 + bx + c = 0 where a CANNOT = 0.
You can solve a quadratic equation by factoring if, after writing it in standard form, the quadratic expression factors.
Step 1: Simplify each side if needed.
Step 2: Write in standard form, ax^2 + bx + c = 0, if needed.
Step 3: Factor.
Step 4: Use the Zero-Product Principle.
Step 5: Solve for the linear equation(s) set up in step 4.
Here is what it looks like: x^2 + 3x - 10 = 0.
