Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x^219x+24 First multiply the coefficient of x^2 and the constant. That is, the coefficient of x^2 here is 2 nd constant is 24. 2*24=48 Then find two factors of 48 such that their sum is 19 and product is 48. That is if the factors are a and b a+b=19 a*b=48
