25. The area of a rectangular field is 2 72 m2. The length of the field is + 8 m. What is the width of the
field in meters?
Example 1: What is 6x2 5x 4 in factored form?

a = 6, b = 5, and c = 4 Find a, b, and c; they are the coefficients of each term.

ac = 24 and b = 5 We are looking for factors with product ac and sum b.

Factors of -24 1,-24 -1,-24 2, -12 -2, 12 -3, 8 3, -8 4, -6 -4, 6


Sum of factors -23 -25 -10 10 5 -5 -2 2
The factors 3 and 8 are the combination whose sum is 5.

Rewrite the middle term using the factors you found.

Find common factors by grouping the terms in pairs.

Rewrite using the Distributive Property.

Check (3x 4)(2x + 1) You can check your answer by multiplying the factors together.

6x2 + 3x 8x 4

6x2 5x 4

Remember that not all quadratic expressions are factorable.
