    You need to find two numbers whose product is +144 and whose sum is -24. What numbers do you get?

    Their product is +144 but their sum is 25 and it needs to be -24. Hint: the product of two negative numbers is positive.

    Keep at it. There are two numbers that multiply to give 144 and add to give -24.
