Here's a some hint to do these type of factoring problems: 1-If the last term is negative (like #1 and 2), your factors will most likely be of the form (x+y)(x-z) 2-If the last term is positive, then your factors will be of the form (x+y)(x+z) OR (x-y)(x-z)

So for example in #1, since the last term is -20, then your factors will look like this: (a + ??)(a - ???)

now think of two numbers that multiply to -20 AND add up to -1....

ok.. since the last term is +32, your factors will look like this: (b + ??) (b + ???) what two numbers can you think of that multiplies to 32 AND add up to 12 ?
