    Step-by-step explanation:

    the steps he took are correct but the answer of x is somehow wrong because

    (x+2)=0

    x = -2

    and not x = 2

    Answer:

    He should have subtracted 2 from each side to find the solution for x+2 =0

    Step-by-step explanation:

    (x + 2)(x – 7) = 0

    Using the zero product property

    x+2 = 0   x-7=0

    x+2-2=0-2    x-7+7=0+7

    x = -2            x=7

    He should have subtracted 2 from each side to find the solution for x+2 =0
