    yeah and then the product of 21 and -21 is -441 and then 40 so the two numbers are -49 and 9

    that is correct, see above u have written -49x - 9x instead of what u got now as -49x+9x

    Compare your quadratic equation with \(ax^2+bx+c=0\) find a,b,c then the two rots of x are: \(\huge{x=\frac{-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}}\)

    but in that equation it says -b so -(-9) is 9
