How do you solve this equation for x? x² + 3x + 2  = 10 x  1 x² + 3x + 2 = 10(x  1) {multiplied both sides by x  1} x² + 3x + 2 = 10x  10 {used distributive property on right side} x²  7x + 12 = 0 {subtracted 10x and added 10 to both sides} (x  4)(x  3) = 0 {factored left side into two binomials} x  4 = 0 or x  3 = 0 {set each factor equal to 0} x = 4 or x = 3 {solved each equation for x} © Algebra House
