Simplifying
10x2 + -9x + 2 = 0

Reorder the terms:
2 + -9x + 10x2 = 0

Solving
2 + -9x + 10x2 = 0

Solving for variable 'x'.

Factor a trinomial.
(2 + -5x)(1 + -2x) = 0

Subproblem 1

Set the factor '(2 + -5x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve: Simplifying 2 + -5x = 0 Solving 2 + -5x = 0 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-2' to each side of the equation. 2 + -2 + -5x = 0 + -2 Combine like terms: 2 + -2 = 0 0 + -5x = 0 + -2 -5x = 0 + -2 Combine like terms: 0 + -2 = -2 -5x = -2 Divide each side by '-5'. x = 0.4 Simplifying x = 0.4

Subproblem 2

Set the factor '(1 + -2x)' equal to zero and attempt to solve: Simplifying 1 + -2x = 0 Solving 1 + -2x = 0 Move all terms containing x to the left, all other terms to the right. Add '-1' to each side of the equation. 1 + -1 + -2x = 0 + -1 Combine like terms: 1 + -1 = 0 0 + -2x = 0 + -1 -2x = 0 + -1 Combine like terms: 0 + -1 = -1 -2x = -1 Divide each side by '-2'. x = 0.5 Simplifying x = 0.5

Solution

x = {0.4, 0.5}
