x2 + bx 24 = 0 can be solved using the factor

method.

x2 + bx 24 = 0 can be written as

( x h )( x k ) = 0 for some real numbers h and

x 2 hx kx + hk = 0

21.

x 2 ( h + k ) x + hk = 0

By comparing coefficients, we have

h + k = b

hk = 24

Let h = 4, k = 6, then b = 4 + 6 = 2

Let h = 3, k = 8, then b = 3 + 8 = 5

Let h = 2, k = 12, then b = 2 + 12 = 10
