## anonymous one year ago Solve each quadratic equation by factoring. Solve: x2 − 14x + 24 = 0 I am not sure how this one works :(

any idea

I get quadratics but with three terms I kinda fall of the rails

which one

s

5. anonymous

like this one x2 − 14x + 24 = 0

lol

do you know the formula

8. anonymous

$x = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2 - 4ac}}/2a$

13. anonymous

The "2a" divides underneath the entire numerator

Alternatively, you can use the :Cross-method" if you are familiar with it.

Oh wait, I got it myself, You have to factor it! It turns into x=2 and x=12 as the zeros of that quadratic!
