Chapter 5 - Section 5.8 - Solving Equations by Factoring and Problem Solving - Exercise Set: 7

Answer

{-2/3, 1/4}

Work Step by Step

1. Factor: 12$x^{2}$ + 5x - 2 = (4x - 1)(3x + 2) 2. Apply the zero factor property to the factored expression: a) 4x - 1 = 0 b) 3x + 2= 0 3. Solve each linear equation: a) x = 1/4 b) x = -2/3 The solutions are {-2/3, 1/4}.
