## vortish 2 years ago factor 7-8x-12x^2

1. nburgher

the problem should be \[-12x ^{2}-8x+7\]

2. vortish

that is the way the books say it is

3. RA1dALLDAY

Cut out the negative numbers and regulate numbers so u don't get confused

4. RA1dALLDAY

Regular*

5. vortish

i know that 12 *7 =84

6. RA1dALLDAY

I could do this gimme a second but the stupid website warned me about giving answers so ill have to work it out with u......

7. vortish

its ok ra every one does it its just a good rule of thumb to help people understand how you got the answer

8. RA1dALLDAY

So if you take out 8x-12x^2..... It would what?

9. vortish

leave with you with 7

10. RA1dALLDAY

Is this question multiple choice?

11. vortish

no it just ask you to factor it

12. RA1dALLDAY

Ok so that means we have to do something with this -12x^2 okay

13. vortish

im still trying to figure it out hopefully some good old american country music will unlock this old mans stupid head

14. RA1dALLDAY

So underneath this equation put this.... (x ) (x )

15. RA1dALLDAY

Lol haha

16. RA1dALLDAY

Then from what I think I remember is that we have to find two numbers that will multiply to equal -12 but it has to be the 2 same numbers that will add up to 7 or something like that I believe.....

17. vortish

lo have you figured this out

18. RA1dALLDAY

Yup it would be 4 and three (x*4) (x*3)

19. vortish

nice try but that is not right so i have to work on another on

20. RA1dALLDAY

Ahhhhh I'm srry I haven't done it in a while :/ my bad bro...

21. vortish

no problem
