11-80.

Solve each equation below for

*x*. Show all of your work. (Your answers will contain the variables*a*,*b*, and/or*c*.) Homework Help ✎*cx*−*a*=*b*− *b*=*c*(

*x*−*a*)(*x*−*b*) = 0*ax*^{2}−*acx*= 0+ *a*=*b*

*x* = *ab* + *ac*

*x* = *a* or *x* = *b*

Factor and use the Zero Product Property.

Multiply both sides by *c*(*a* + *b*).

Subtract *a* from both sides and take the reciprocal of both sides.
