Once you've filled out the boxes, you add up all the terms
so can you do the box method and explain with the answer jim_thompson5910
What is x times x?
x^2
I'm asking Nick2019 because I want to make sure he knows this (sorry, I don't mean to sound rude TheViper) So since x times x is x^2, this updates the boxes to get |dw:1341863362988:dw|
Do the same with the other boxes and tell me what you get
lol sorry i left can i just get the asnwer lol
what is x times -2 ?
-2x
So the boxes updates to |dw:1341870148582:dw|
What is -3 times x
-3x and then possitive 6
so we then get |dw:1341870959503:dw|
Now add up all the terms in the boxes x^2 + (-2x) + (-3x) + 6 x^2 - 2x - 3x + 6 x^2 - 5x + 6 So (x-2)(x-3) = x^2 - 5x + 6
