slove the problem

Since the highest term is x^2 (a quadratic equation), then you have three options to solve this:

1) Factoring and setting each factor =0

2) Quadratic Formula

3) Completing the Square

4) graph it and see where the "zeros" are

Looking at the numbers we are given, I would try factoring first and then the quadratic formula. Double check your answers/solutions by graphing.
