    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

    6x^2 - 12x = 0

    6x(x - 2) = 0

    6x = 0

    x = 0

    &

    x - 2 = 0

    x = 2

    Hence

    x = 0,2.

    (6x - 12) (x) = 0 =>

    x = 2 or x = 0.
