Tap for more steps…
Group the first two terms and the last two terms.
(-3u2+4u)+63u-84
Factor out the greatest common factor (GCF) from each group.
u(-3u+4)-21(-3u+4)
u(-3u+4)-21(-3u+4)
Factor the polynomial by factoring out the greatest common factor, -3u+4.
(-3u+4)(u-21)
(-3u+4)(u-21)
Replace all occurrences of u with p.
(-3p+4)(p-21)
Replace the left side with the factored expression.
(-3p+4)(p-21)=0
(-3p+4)(p-21)=0
If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to 0, the entire expression will be equal to 0.
-3p+4=0
p-21=0
Set the first factor equal to 0 and solve.
Tap for more steps…
Set the first factor equal to 0.
-3p+4=0
