    Try dividing both sides of the eqn by -3 and see if it helps.

    Was there a reason for putting this in the "Calculus and Beyond" section? I'm moving it to "PreCalculus".

    Answer <if u didnt get it already>

    the way 2 do it is this
    divide by -3 lik the other guy said

    For other harder problems where it is harder 2 factorize use the formula
    for ax^2+bx+c=0
