Calculator Output

Simplifying
x2 + -5x + 6 = 0

Reorder the terms:
6 + -5x + x2 = 0

Solving
6 + -5x + x2 = 0

Solving for variable 'x'.

Factor a trinomial.
(2 + -1x)(3 + -1x) = 0

Subproblem 1

Set the factor '(2 + -1x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve: Simplifying 2 + -1x = 0 Solving 2 + -1x = 0 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-2' to each side of the equation. 2 + -2 + -1x = 0 + -2 Combine like terms: 2 + -2 = 0 0 + -1x = 0 + -2 -1x = 0 + -2 Combine like terms: 0 + -2 = -2 -1x = -2 Divide each side by '-1'. x = 2 Simplifying x = 2

Subproblem 2

Set the factor '(3 + -1x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve: Simplifying 3 + -1x = 0 Solving 3 + -1x = 0 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-3' to each side of the equation. 3 + -3 + -1x = 0 + -3 Combine like terms: 3 + -3 = 0 0 + -1x = 0 + -3 -1x = 0 + -3 Combine like terms: 0 + -3 = -3 -1x = -3 Divide each side by '-1'. x = 3 Simplifying x = 3

Solution

x = {2, 3}
