Use factoring to solve the following quadratic: 6x2 + 23x - 18 = 0
Therefore, x=2/3, and x=(-9)/2
6x^2+23x-18=0 -- 6*-18=-108 factors that made 23 are 27 and -4
6x^2+27x-4x-18=0 -- factorise each half of the equation i.e. 6x^2+27x and 4x-18
3x(2x+9)-2(2x+9) -- the brackets are the same, that's one side, and combine the 2 other terms outside the brackets for the second bracket.
x=2/3 or x=-9/2 -- there we go, fixed.
