    u have used quadratic formula to find roots, when it was asked to factor. if u only want an answer it doesn't matter what u use , factoring or formula...so do u want an answer or do u want to learn factoring?

    ok, so u got quadratic equation as 24p^2 -55 p -24 = 0 right ? now tell me 2 numbers whose product is -24*24 = -576 and sum is -55

    that's the part that i hate, because it takes so long to find the numbers. there's no easy way to find them? or a trick

    thats correct :) so u write your equation as 24p^2 -64p +9p -24 = 0 ok ? now what can u take out common from 1st 2 terms ??

    so u take 8p common 8p(3p-8) + 3 (3p-8) = 0 got this ? yes, other part is correct

  21. eli123

    which gives you (8p+3)(3p-8)
