Solve the following quadratic equation by factorization method : `x^2-5x+6=0`

Advertisements

Solution

The given quadratic equation is x2 - 5x + 6 = 0
Rewriting the above equation, we have,
x2 - 3x - 2x + 6 =0
 x(x - 3) - 2(x - 3)=0
 (x - 2)(x - 3)=0
x - 2 = 0 or x - 3 = 0
x = 2 or x = 3

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
