1-13.

Use the Zero Product Property and factoring, when necessary, to solve for $x$. The Math Notes box for Lesson 1.1.4 may be useful, if you need help.

1. $(x+13)(x−7)=0$

Set each factor equal to $0$, then solve for $x$.

$x=−13\ \text{or}\ x=7$

1. $(2x+3)(3x−7)=0$

Refer to part (a).

$x=-\frac{3}{2}\text{ or }x=\frac{7}{3}$

1. $x(x−3)=0$

Refer to part (a).

$x=0\ \text{or}\ x=3$

1. $x^2−5x=0$

Factor the problem first, then set each factor equal to $0$ and solve for $x$.

$x(x−5)=0$

$x=0\ \text{or}\ x=5$

1. $x^2−2x−35=0$

Remember to factor first.

1. $3x^2+14x−5=0$

Remember to factor first.
