That?

Alright so the way I was taught to do factors like this was first multiply the first term by the last term so
2*6=12

- anonymous

Now we have to find something that multiplys to equal twelve and adds to equal -7

Two methods

The cross method is easier

- anonymous

um, -4 and -3? @recon14193

- anonymous

yes so what we can do is split up the center term now. It's not correct by normal math standards but when we're done you will have it factored

- anonymous

See?

so we have
\[2x^{2}-3x-4x+6\]

- anonymous

then we group them and factor from each

- anonymous

So it becomes (2x-3)(x-2)

- anonymous

so is (2x-3)(x-2) the final answer?

- anonymous

Correct

- anonymous

If you see the attachments

- anonymous

You will be able to see the cross method applied

- anonymous

okay, then why are my answer choices:
a. 2
b. y − 8
c. x − 4
d. x + 6

- anonymous

Huh... That's weird

That's very odd because non of those answers are factored

- anonymous

so what would be the right answer out of those?

- anonymous

I'm so confused...

- anonymous

Well non of them are correct

- anonymous

Is there a way to contact your teacher about that?

- anonymous

unfortunately not

- anonymous

If not... Just pick one because the expression you have me can be put into a quadratic equation and when that is true you can never have just a variable and a number

- anonymous

oh okay. well thanks for your help anyway :)

- anonymous

Sure thing... Non of the choices are correct so you shouldn't get penalized for it... I mean factored means to have two separate items to multiply with
