Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble with my math problem.

The topic is about solving quadratic equations through factoring.

And here's the equation:

*15x^2 = 2(4 - 7x)*

**I distributed the 2**

*⇒ 15x^2 = 8 - 14x*

**and then transformed it into the standard form and got **

*⇒ 15x^2 + 14x - 8 = 0*

**Then I factored it out into: **

⇒ 15x^2 + 20x - 6x - 8 = 0

**then I grouped the terms**

⇒ (15x^2 + 20x) - (6x - 8) = 0

**factored them out again.**

⇒ 5(3x + 4) - 2(3x - 4) = 0

*And that's where I'm lost. I don't know what to do next since the two factors are conjugates. I hope someone can help. :)*
