Now, you have TWO small equations to solve:
You may want to see my FREE website for additional explanation on this topic. The easiest way to find the website is to use the easy-to-remember and easy-to-spell link www.mathinlivingcolor.com. Near the bottom of this page is a link that takes you to my Homepage. On my Homepage, look for the link "Basic, Intermediate, and College Algebra: One Step at a Time." Choose "Basic Algebra" and look in Chapter 2 for the section on Factoring Trinomial and also the section on Solving Quadratic Equations by Factoring. I think you will really like the "Math in Living Color" pages that go with these sections. In addition, I have a FREE video on this topic that was made in my younger years before I retired. To see the video, look on my Homepage for the link "Rapalje Videos in Living Color." Choose Basic Algebra, and look for the video on "Factoring."
