im not sure if this is what you want, any way that you can solve it in a TI calculater like this: Solve(3x^2-12x+19,x)
that will give you the answer for x

### Find the smallest two consecutive even integers such that three times the smaller is at least 19 more than the sum of the two integers

Let x be the smallest number.
Let x + 2 be the other number (consecutive even integer)

Now to translate the rest;)
three times the smaller 3(x)
19 more -19
sum of the two integers - (x) +( x+2)

Pulling it together,
3x -19 = x + x +2
collect like terms
3x - 19 = 2x + 2
Put all the constants on one side by adding 19 to both sides.
3x - 19 +19= 2x + 2 + 19
3x = 2x +21
Subtract 2x from both sides to have all the x's on one side.
3x - 2x = 2x +21 - 2x
x = 21
The other number is 21 + 2, or 23
Check:three times the smaller = 3 x 21 = 63
sum of the two integers = 21 + 23 or 44
is 63 at least 19 more than 44

It seems to me that you are trying to solve the quadratic equation
aX^2+bX+c=10 with a=-3, b=3, c=15 or -3X^2+3X+15=0.
Since the all the coefficients are multiples of 3, one can simplify the equation by dividing every thing by 3, leaving -X^2+X+5=0. But to avoid confusing you I will consider the original equation -3X^2+3X+15=0..
You must first find out if the equation has any real solutions. To do that you calculate the discriminant (you do not have to remember the name if you choose to).
Discriminant is usually represented by the Greek letter DELTA (a triangle)
DELTA =b^2-4*a*c =(3)^2-4*(-3)*(15)=189
If the discriminant is positive (your case) the equation has two real solutions which are given by
Solution1 =X_1=(-3-SQRT(189))/(-2*3)=(1+SQRT(21))/2
Here SQRT stands for square root.

### Definition of special product in algebra types and example of special product in algebra

Product means the result you get after multiplying.
In Algebra xy means x multiplied by y
Likewise when you see (a+b)(a-b) it means (a+b) multiplied by (a-b), which we will be using a lot here!
Special Binomial Products So when you multiply binomials you get ... Binomial Products
And we are going to look at three special cases of multiplying binomials ... so they are Special Binomial Products.
1. Multiplying a Binomial by Itself What happens when you square a binomial (in other words, multiply it by itself) .. ?

(a+b)2 = (a+b)(a+b) = ... ?

The result:

(a+b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2
You can easily see why it works, in this diagram:

2. Subtract Times Subtract And what happens if you square a binomial with a minus inside?

(a-b)2 = (a-b)(a-b) = ... ?

The result:

(a-b)2 = a2 - 2ab + b2
3. Add Times Subtract And then there is one more special case... what if you multiply (a+b) by (a-b) ?

(a+b)(a-b) = ... ?

The result:

(a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2
That was interesting! It ended up very simple.
And it is called the "difference of two squares" (the two squares are a2 and b2).
a2 - b2 is equal to (a+b)(a-b) Note: it does not matter if (a-b) comes first:

(a-b)(a+b) = a2 - b2
The Three Cases Here are the three results we just got:
(a+b)2 = a2 + 2ab + b2 } (the "perfect square trinomials") (a-b)2 = a2 - 2ab + b2 (a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2 (the "difference of squares") Remember those patterns, they will save you time and help you solve many algebra puzzles.
Using Them So far we have just used "a" and "b", but they could be anything.
Example: (y+1)2
We can use the (a+b)2 case where "a" is y, and "b" is 1:

(y+1)2 = (y)2 + 2(y)(1) + (1)2 = y2 + 2y + 1

Example: (3x-4)2
We can use the (a-b)2 case where "a" is 3x, and "b" is 4:

(3x-4)2 = (3x)2 - 2(3x)(4) + (4)2 = 9x2 - 24x + 16

Example: (4y+2)(4y-2)
We know that the result will be the difference of two squares, because:

(a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2
so:

(4y+2)(4y-2) = (4y)2 - (2)2 = 16y2 - 4
Sometimes you can recognize the pattern of the answer:
Example: can you work out which binomials to multiply to get 4x2 - 9
Hmmm... is that the difference of two squares?
Yes! 4x2 is (2x)2, and 9 is (3)2, so we have:

4x2 - 9 = (2x)2 - (3)2
And that can be produced by the difference of squares formula:

(a+b)(a-b) = a2 - b2
Like this ("a" is 2x, and "b" is 3):

(2x+3)(2x-3) = (2x)2 - (3)2 = 4x2 - 9
So the answer is that you can multiply (2x+3) and (2x-3) to get 4x2 - 9

### How to factor 5x^2-3x-10 ?

This equation doesn't have whole number factors so you have to solve it by completing the square or using the quadratic equation. I used the quadratic equation and got the following answers.

[3 + sqrt(209)]/10 and [3 - sqrt(209)]/10

I hope this helps you out.

### 2x^2-19x+22

I'm assumeing the problem is 2x^2 - 19x+22 = 0, solve for x.

I don't see any easy to factor this so I'll either need to complete the square or use the quadratic equation.
Using the quadratic equation, where A = 2, B = -19, and C = 22

x = [-(-19) +/- squareroot( 19^2 - 4*2*22)] / (2*2) =
(19 +/- squareroot(185))/4 =
8.150367 or 1.349632

### (2x+3y)(3x+2y)

(2x - 3y)(3x + 2y) = 2x*3x + 2x*2y - 3y*3x - 3y*2y
= 6x^2 + 4xy - 9xy - 6y^2
= 6x^2 - 5xy - 6y^2 You multiply each element in the first set of brackets by each element in the second set of brackets and then consolidate like terms and arrange them in sequence of powers, first x and then y. So:
2x by 3x = 6x squared
2x by 2y = 4xy
-3y by 3x = -9xy
-3y by 2y = 6y squared

6x squared -5xy + 6y squared

### 6x squared - 10x =0

Factor out 3X
3X(2X-5)=0
The expression is equal to zero if one of the factors on the left side equals zero.
1st solution: 3X=0, thus X=0
2nd solution 2X-5 = 0 if X=5/2
