## Introductory Algebra for College Students (7th Edition)

Rewrite the equation in standard form. x$^2$-11x=-10 x$^2$-11x+10=0 Factor the trinomial. (x-10)(x-1)=0 Set each variable factor as equal to zero and then isolate the variable to find the solutions. x-10=0 or x-1=0 x=10 or x=1 Enter the original equation into your graphing utility to observe that the graph crosses the x-axis at 10 and 1.
