9-27.
  1. Solve the following quadratic equations by factoring and using the Zero Product Property. Then check your solutions. Homework Help ✎

    1. x2 − 10x + 25 = 0

    2. 0 = 3x2 + 17x − 6

    3. 3x2 − 2x = 5

    4. 16x2 − 9 = 0

Use a generic rectangle and a diamond problem to help you factor the equation.

x = 5

See part (a).

Rewrite the equation so that it is equal to 0.

You should notice that this is a difference of squares.
