To learn how to format math textually, please read the article on formatting which was mentioned in the "How to type math clearly" article in the "Forum Rules". Thank you! :D

To study up on how to solve quadratic equations, try here.

Once you have learned the basic terms and techniques, please attempt the exercise. A good first step will be to subtract "6" from either side. This quadratic will then factor (as the product of x - 6 and x - 5), but you could apply the Quadratic Formula, too, if you prefer. :wink:
