4t2-4t-5t+5=0
4t2-4t-5t+5=0
Factor out the greatest common factor from each group.
Tap for more steps…
Group the first two terms and the last two terms.
(4t2-4t)-5t+5=0
Factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) from each group.
4t(t-1)-5(t-1)=0
4t(t-1)-5(t-1)=0
Factor the polynomial by factoring out the greatest common factor, t-1.
(t-1)(4t-5)=0
(t-1)(4t-5)=0
If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to 0, the entire expression will be equal to 0.
t-1=0
4t-5=0
Set the first factor equal to 0 and solve.
Tap for more steps…
Set the first factor equal to 0.
t-1=0
Add 1 to both sides of the equation.
t=1
t=1
Set the next factor equal to 0 and solve.
Tap for more steps…
Set the next factor equal to 0.
4t-5=0
