In Asia, kids are taught this by the 6th Grade. At the very latest, American schools should teach this by the 8th grade.

(x-12)(x+15)
X = 12
X = -15; plug it in
-15^2 + 3(-15) -5 = 175 = = 175 = 175
12^2 + 3(12) - 5 = 175 = = 175 = 175
X = 12 or X = -15

Okay guys, we're all proud that you passed Algebra 1, so you can stop trying to show that you can solve a simple quadratic.

x^2+3x-5=175
-175 -175
x^2+3x-180=0
(x-12)(x+15)=0 Then you turn it into a binomial
Then you solve each one separately so you get x=12 and x=-15

A function like this forms a parabola when graphed and crosses the x-axis twice unless b^2-(4ac) is a number less than 0 in which case the parabola does not cross the x-axis at all. The two answers are the values for x where y is equal to 0

No because x is the answer and there are 2 different answers in this problem. When a binomial equals zero you have to solve for each side of the binomial. When you do this you plug each one back into the original equation. Which ever one when plugged in is right, that is the answer. In this case, when both are plugged in they are both correct. Its basic Algebra. You'll learn it in middle school or high school depending on how smart you are

Yeah and to get it to equal zero you subtract the 175 to get it on the other side. Then everything equals zero, you turn it into a binomial and then you solve for each

x^2 + 3x - 5 = 175   
Subtract 175   
x^2 + 3x - 180   
Super fast factoring   
(x + 15)(x - 12)   
Set each to zero   
X = -15 or +12   
   
Hurray for math!
