Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not quite so 1*12=12, 2*6=12, 3*4=12. So (1,12), (2,6), (3,4) are factors do any of these pairs add up to 7?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2+ 7x + 12 = x^2 + 3x + 4x + 12 ( since 7x = 3x+4x) = x(x + 3) +4( x + 3) Take (x +3) as common term = (x +3)(x +4) Therefore, Answer = ( x+3 )( x+4 )
