 Question 531485: Problem: 5X^2+75=25X What I've got so far: 5X^2-25X+75=0 (5x- )(x- ) or (5x-25)(x+3) I tried to separate the 25X and 75 from the equation and since 25X isn't squared it didn't simplify into 2 sets of parentheses. Then I combined the GCF of 25x and 75 with the 5x^2 and it doesn't multiply out to get the same thing as the problem.
