2.C. Solving Equations using Factoring

Some equations can be solved by factoring. Using factoring in tandem with zero product property, can help find solutions to some equations.

Zero product property is the following:
  • For any real numbers a and b, if ab=0, then either a=0, b=0, or both a and b equal zero.
