6x^2 − 12x = 0

◙Well as you can see the common factor is for sure x as, both terms have it so we factor:

x(6x-12)=0

◙Now you can solve it like this too, but you can see that 6 is common factor of 6 and 12 so you can put that outside:

6x(x-2)=0

◙The final step is to make each factor equal to 0 for your equation to be true, so:

(6x=0) OR (x-2=0)

x=0 OR x=2

◙As you can see 0 and 2 are the two solutions of your quadratic equation, if you want to put them as comma-separated you present them like this:

x=0,2

Factorize into a single bracket (as there are only x terms)

6x(x-2)

Solve brackets to equal 0

x=0

x=2
