Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you can't think of two such factors, right? for example here are the possibles: product=8 and sum=7 8(1) but 8+1=? 8(1) but 81=? 2(4) but 2+4=? (2)(4) but 24=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x8)(x+1) since there is an x squared, then you will have an x in each parenthesis. Now you need to find 2 numbers that will add to 7 AND multiply to 8. these numbers will each go in the parenthesis. In this problem, the two numbers are 8 and 1
