Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x7)(x+12) You want two numbers that multiple to get the constant term, or 84 in this specific example. AND they also need to add up to the coefficient in the middle term, in this case 19. The two numbers 7 and +12 do exactly that, so it factors that way.
