How would I find the solutions to (x+3)(x-4)=0?

It's been a long onth and a half.... and without any book (or any terms to look up) I wasn't sure how to go about doing this. If you have any links to a website explaining how to do this, that would be great too.

    ok first set both things in parantheses equal to 0.

    1) x+3 = 0

    x= -3

    2) x-4 =0

    x=4

    so the solution is -3,and 4

    x=-3, x=4

    -3 ignored

    ans. 4

    Google math homework help. You'll get lots of sites that help with algebra.

    Use one that takes you through the steps, not just gives you the answer!!

    for the product to be zero, either or both terms must be zero. should be easy from here on out......
