x2-10x-24 = (x+2)(x-12) when factored

3(x - 8)

6(x - 4)

x2 + 11x + 24 You want the equation to be in the form (x + a)(x + b), where the two solutions are -a and -b.You know that...ab = 24...and...a + b = 11Note that 8 times 3 is 24, and 8 plus 3 is 11.x2 + 11x + 24 = (x + 3)(x + 8)The two answers are x = -3 and x = -8.

(x+6)*(x-4)
