To find the factors of the polynomial x^2+5x14, you have to factor the equation first. Use crisscross method or the australian method to do this. Do you know how to do this?

And here's the actual explanation for it: 1. Find two numbers that add to get 5, but multiply to get 14. In other words: a + b = 5 ab = 14 And you figure out that a = 7, b = 2 works for both. Then you perform the following steps: x^2+5x14 x^2 + 7x  2x 2*7 x(x + 7) 2(x + 7) (x + 7)(x  2)
