I thought all that fancy text was supposed to mean something? All well, that is pretty easy!!!

- Alex_Mattucci

Thanks for the help!!!

- Nnesha

factor of that equation would be like (x-b)(x+b)
which is same as linear equation y=mx+b

- Nnesha

np o^_^o

Does all this fancy text also just mean to factor?
Rewrite x^2 - 8x + 16 as a square of a linear expression.

- Nnesha

lol i feeeel ya ;-^

- Nnesha

yes right
there is a word `square` that means u answer would be (x-h)^2
you will get same parentheses
here is an example
x^2+4x+4
we need two number when we multiply them we should get product of AC =4 times 1 =4
and when we add/subtract them we should get middle which is also 4 in this question
so 2 times 2 =4
2+2=4
factors are (x+2)(x+2) which can be written as (x+2)^2

- Alex_Mattucci

So would x^2 + 2x - 24 be (x-4)(x+6)?

- Nnesha

6 times -4 = -24 yes
6-4 =2 so yes

- Alex_Mattucci

And so x^2 - 8x + 16 should be (x-4)^2, correct?

- Nnesha

how ? explain plz :=)
