15 x -16 = -240 15 + -16 = -1

x^2 - 8x + 16 = 0(x )(x )You need two numbers that when multiplied are equal to 16, and when added are equal to 8.These two numbers are 4 and 4 (4 * 4 = 16, 4 + 4 = 16)Then you need to figure out if these are positive or negative. Since 16 is positive, you know that the numbers are either both positive or both negative. Since the 8 is negative, you know they must be negative.(x - 4)*(x - 4)
