Solve by any method: 3x^{2} +27x = 30

Divide by 3: x^{2} + 9x = 10

Subtract 10 from both sides: x^{2} + 9x - 10 = 0

Factor: (x + 10) (x - 1) = 0

Set each factor = to zero: x + 10 = 0 and x - 1 = 0

Solve: x = -10, 1

Note, you can check these answers by plugging them into the original equation.
