# Calculator Output

```Simplifying
2x3 + -9x2 + -5x = 0

Reorder the terms:
-5x + -9x2 + 2x3 = 0

Solving
-5x + -9x2 + 2x3 = 0

Solving for variable 'x'.

Factor out the Greatest Common Factor (GCF), 'x'.
x(-5 + -9x + 2x2) = 0

Factor a trinomial.
x((-1 + -2x)(5 + -1x)) = 0

Subproblem 1Set the factor 'x' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
x = 0

Solving
x = 0

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Simplifying
x = 0
Subproblem 2Set the factor '(-1 + -2x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
-1 + -2x = 0

Solving
-1 + -2x = 0

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '1' to each side of the equation.
-1 + 1 + -2x = 0 + 1

Combine like terms: -1 + 1 = 0
0 + -2x = 0 + 1
-2x = 0 + 1

Combine like terms: 0 + 1 = 1
-2x = 1

Divide each side by '-2'.
x = -0.5

Simplifying
x = -0.5
Subproblem 3Set the factor '(5 + -1x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve:

Simplifying
5 + -1x = 0

Solving
5 + -1x = 0

Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right.

Add '-5' to each side of the equation.
5 + -5 + -1x = 0 + -5

Combine like terms: 5 + -5 = 0
0 + -1x = 0 + -5
-1x = 0 + -5

Combine like terms: 0 + -5 = -5
-1x = -5

Divide each side by '-1'.
x = 5

Simplifying
x = 5Solutionx = {0, -0.5, 5}```
