    find multiples that multiples to 144 and find terms that add up to 24

    sorry i explain better so you have a quadratic x^2 + bx + c and the cross this shows this|dw:1350243509596:dw| so (d)(e) has to = c and d + e has to = b

    haha np glad to help and make sure that there is no coefficient in front of the x^2 for this to work, otherwise you have to take it a step further
