    \(\Large \color{purple}{\rightarrow x^5(51x) = 51x^6 }\)

    @endiia Amir is correct, he has actually grouped the quadratic expression.

    x^2−14x−51=(x-3)*(x+17)

    so when u factor it the answer is (x-3)(x+17)

    so x is 3 & 17

    Yes, a better and cleared answer is: \(\LARGE \color{purple}{\rightarrow x^5[(x - 3)(x + 17)] }\)

    sorry it's x^2−14x−51=(x+3)*(x-17) so answer is x^5×(x+3)×(x-17)

  20. amir.sat

    and x is 0 & -3 & 17
