Hello, this is an active homework problem in an online course. The post is the exact question. Please don't give an answer for this. Thanks for understanding!
To the OP - Look back over your class transcripts. Did you see any problems in class that looked like the left side of these equations? The first term is the product of two variables, and the next two terms are variable*constant. Is there a Factoring Trick that might apply here?
Remember to ask on the message boards for the class if you get stuck, and don't go asking for solutions online. Keep working hard!
