Factor: 28 + 34c - 12c^2Answer by Alan3354(31538)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Factor: 28 + 34c - 12c^2 -------------------- All the coefficients are even numbers, so factor out a 2. = -------- From there, it's trial and error. There's no method that applies. ---- 14 has 2 possible combinations: 1*14 or 2*7 Since it's +14, the signs are the same. ------- 12 can be 1*12, 2*6 or 3*4, and the signs are different because it's - 12 ------ Find the numbers that give +17 for the c term.
