plug \(x = 4\) in the equation and see if it satisfies

but i factored the equation so it's left to either x = 4 or x = 6, or, x = -4 or x =-6, and i get mixed up with negatives so i guess i just need reassurance

i think it might be the negatives

x^2 - 10x + 24 = 0 replace x by 4 4^2 - 10*4 + 24 = 0 16 - 40 + 24 = 0 0 = 0 which is a true statement, so 4 is indeed a solution

it is important that you know how to check if a number satisfies an equation or not
