K for part 1, all you have to know for the first problem is what factors when multiplied eqaul 36, do you know that? :)

That doesn't equal 36 when multiplied, but 6*6 does :)

so how would it be solved?

Now all you would do is (x6)(x+6) to factor the quadratic equation. Wait is that what you needed?

K so we have x^2= 8x12. We can make this x^28x+12=0

Now you need to find out what factors when multiplied to 12, add up to 8. Can you think of anY? :)

sooo....(x+4) (x4)

Not necessarily. 4*4=16. We need two numbers like 6*2 that equal 12 and add up to 8 :) Since those two numbers are it we can factor our quadratic equation as (x6)(x2)
