 Question 144725: Hi. I really need help with the factoring trinomial problem 1/2x(x+20)=78. I've tried to answer it but I can't find the right factors for the numbers. This is as far as I got, 1/2x(x+20)=78 1/2x(squared)+10x=78 1/2x(squared)+10x-78=0 Now, I'm not sure if before you subtract 78 you're supposed to divide by 1/2. So, I tried doing that and got, x(squared)+10=156 x(squared)+10-156=0 After that I can't get the factors right. Please help. Thank you! Click here to see answer by faceoff57(82)
