Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In order to do this you want to get two factors of 24 that will equal to 5. What two factors of 24 equal 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm its 1 because they have no other common factor :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For example factors of 6 are 3 and 2, 1 and 6, 3 and 2, and 1 and 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When they are multiplied they equal 6.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 1: Find multiples for 24. Step 2: (After getting a few), add together these numbers and see which one gets you 5 Step 3: Use those two numbers that get 5 that multiply to 24 Your numbers should be 8 and 3. Step 4: Apply these to your x. (x8) (x+3) > also roots If you wanted to find the zeroes as well, you would make them both equal to zero. For example, (x8) would be x8=0. Do simple math, and your zero is 8. For now, though, refer to roots. ((I believe I did this right, but the question could be asking something different. We never referred to them as separate binomials in Alg 2, unless what the question is asking is different than what I'm thinking))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ik but 24 and 5 only have 1 in common

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 6 and 4 multiplied equal 24 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay added up what do they equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good that doesn't equal 5. But what about 8 and 3? That would equal 11, however what if we did 8 and 3? Try adding 8 and 3 what do you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok its negative 5 so 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes so now you take those factors and make it into a binomial. So (x8)(x+3). Now check your work. And multiply the binomials

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What do you get when you multiply (x8) and (x+3)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No. what is x*x? or x^(1+1)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh yeah X is always 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What???? No x multiplied by x is x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now what is 3 times x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good job. Now what is 8 times x?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good job. Finally, what is 8 times 3?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good so now that we have FOILed we will add the answers up so x^2 + 3x  8x 24 Combine like terms. 3x  8x is 5x x^2  5x 24 Does that look like the original problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A lot of bit because that is what is asking you to factor so we said the answer before and checked it so what is your factored binomial we checked?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No that is not the binomial. That is what the binomial equals, come on we just said it (x8)(x+3). So your final answer is (x8)(x+3). The reason we checked it to see if it was like the question is to ensure accuracy. Hope this helped!
