12-37.

Solve each equation below for the given variable. Check your solution by verifying that your solution makes the original equation true. Homework Help ✎

(15 *u*− 6) = 14*u*(5 −

*x*)(3*x*+ 8) = 02(

*k*− 5)^{2}= 322

*p*^{2}+ 7*p*− 9 = 0

Distribute before simplifying.

10*u* − 4 = 14*u*

− 4 = 4*u*

*u* = − 1

Use the Zero Product Property.

Divide by 2 first and be sure to find two solutions.

*k* = 1 or 9

Use the Quadratic Formula.

*p* = −4.5 or 1
