Work Step by Step

We rearrange the equation into the standard form of a quadratic equation and factor out $x$. We then equate both the factors to zero and solve the equation: $x^{2}=17x$ $x^{2}-17x+0=0$ $x^{2}-17x=0$ $x(x-17)=0$ $x=0$ and $(x-17)=0$ $x=0$ and $x=17$ Therefore, the solution set is {$0,17$}.
