Look for a common factor.

12x^{2}+14x=0 has a common factor or 2x

2x(6x+7)=0

Or you can solve for x

12x^{2}+14x = 0 can be rearranged to:

12x^{2}=-14x

divide both sides by 2x reduces to:

6x = -7

divide both sides by 6 gives:

x = -7/6 or -1.166......

Hope this is what your looking for.

12x^{2} + 14x=0

First, factor what both terms have in common. (this should ALWAYS be your first step - if possible)

We can factor out a 2x

2x(6x+7)=0

Set both terms = 0

2x = 0 AND 6x+7=0

x=0 x=-7/6
