I am really stumpedAnswer by solver91311(16872)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! You are just doing the problem backwards. In the first place, since there are two solutions, you know that you must have a second degree equation. If you were solving a quadratic, something that looks like: You would factor the trinomial and have something that looks like: Then you would use the Zero Product Rule to say: so or so Therefore, start at the end: so Likewise: Now we have our two factors: So all you have to do is multiply the binomials using FOIL and you are done.
