## Related Questions It is x^2 -13x +12 = (x-1)(x-12) when factored The expression x2 + 1x - 12 can be factored out as (x - 3)(x + 4)     (2x - 4)(2x + 3) The key is to look for all the factor pairs of 12. That doesn't factor neatly. Applying the quadratic formula, we find two real solutions: (1 plus or minus the square root of 37) divided by 3. c = 2.36092084343274 c = -1.694254176766073  Find out what two numbers add up to -8 yet when mutiplied they produce 12 and so: x squared-8x+12 = (x-2)(x-6) when factored   Factor out a 22(X2 + X - 12)2(X - 3)(X + 4)===========   3X2 - 123(X2 - 4)=========All the factoring that can be done here. Numerator = (x + 4)*(x + 3) Denominator = (2x - 1)*(x + 3) Calcelling out the common factor, (x + 3), the answer is (x + 4) divided by (2x - 1) provided x &acirc;&permil;&nbsp; 0.5 12 squared plus 18 squared is equal to 468.  still 1The square root of 1 is plus or minus 1. &radic;1 = &plusmn; 1 The reason is that 12 = 1 and -12 = 1. (Either 1 squared or minus 1 squared equals one.) (x2-7x+12)/(x2-2x-3)factor the numerator & denominator:(x-4)(x-3)/(x-3)(x-1)now reduce:(x-4)(x-3)/(x+1)(x-3)(x-4)/(x+1) I assume you wanted this factored: (x+6)(x-2)  The answer is 4 squared minus 2 squared as 4 squared is 16 minus 2 squared, which is 4, gives you 12 as an answer. ###### AlgebraMath and ArithmeticFactoring and Multiples Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
