I'm not sure this was notated correctly. As written, this is -11x plus or minus 18, which doesn't factor.

I assume you mean...,X2 + 11X + 10(X + 1)(X + 10)==============factored

x^3 - 121x

It doesn't factor evenly if it were x**2-11x+10: x**2-11x+10 = (x-1)(x-10)

The "difference of squares" has a formula. (11x + 1)(11x - 1)

Factor out -2: -2(x squared +11x-20). This is fully factored.

x^3 - 121x

No answer in integers, nor outside the realm of imaginary numbers. Typo?

3x2 - 11x - 4 = (x-4)(3 x + 1)

You have to experiment with different factors of 2, and different factors of 15. In this case, 2x2 - 11x + 15 = (2x - 5) (x - 3)

x = -28 / -11^2

(11x - 2)(3x - 5)

I'm not sure this was notated correctly. As written, this is -11x plus or minus 18, which doesn't factor.

x2 - 11x + 24 = (x - 3)(x - 8)
