 Sep24 awarded Autobiographer Nov1 comment Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? A full, very concise and understandable explanation. I need to practice a few more problems just to make sure but the concept seems clear. There are no words to express my gratitude. Thank you. Nov1 awarded Scholar Nov1 comment Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? Thank ou for your patience and your time. You are a true gentleman and a scholar :) Nov1 accepted Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? Nov1 comment Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? O_O... Oh man, I was looking for it to work out like the second equation so much, flipping it every which way, I totally forgot about the quadratic equation. Thanks again! >_< Nov1 comment Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? Thanks for this, I've always been taught to "just take this and that set it to 0" with no good explanation why. This cleared up some gaps in my understanding. Any chance I could get some help on that first equation? I'm really stuck. Nov1 comment Quadratic equation / why does $x(x-2)=0$ imply $x = 0 \lor x = 2$? Thanks for the vocab lesson, a quick googling turned up some useful links.
