............................2
I found the answer. x3x10=0. (The 2 is an power for x. Forget the Dots) It is (x5)(x+2) 5,2

x^23x10=0
that's how it starts (this is a quadratic equation) then i factored for exampla: (xm) (x+n) and the original is ax^2+bx+c=0 m+n must equal b, and mn must equal c. 5 and 2 add up to 3 and they multiply to get 10 therefore, it is (x5)(x+2)=0 either x5=0, or x+2=0 therefore x=5, or 2 now who do u think is going to win mathcounts? do u get how i did it?
