    to factor it you need the equation in the standard form \[\huge\rm Ax^2+Bx+C=0\]

    So that its x^2-2x-24=0

    looks good :=) now there 3 + ways to factor out the quadratic equation easy one is to find `two numbers` when you multiply them you should get product of `AC` but when you `add or subtract` them you should get middle term a=leading coefficient b=middle term c=constant term

    -6 times 4 =-24 -6+2 = -2 good to go! \(\huge\color{green}{\checkmark}\)
