Solve for x:

5 x^2 - 34 x + 24 = 0

 

The left hand side factors into a product with two terms:

(x - 6) (5 x - 4) = 0

 

Split into two equations:

x - 6 = 0 or 5 x - 4 = 0

 

Add 6 to both sides:

x = 6 or 5 x - 4 = 0

 

Add 4 to both sides:

x = 6 or 5 x = 4

 

Divide both sides by 5:

x = 6        or        x = 4/5
