x^2 + ax + bx + ab which can be simplified into
x^2 + (a+b)x + ab
Use this as a base for all of the your equations.
Lets do the first one.
ab will be the same as the last term which is -6. Then look at the second term which is x. In this case there is nothing in front of x. However x is the same as 1 times x since 1 times anything is the same. Look back to the equation I gave you.
(a+b)x will be equal to 1x which is equal to x. Therefore, a+b has to equal to 1 and we know ab is equal to -6. List all the two pairs of whole numbers whose product is 6.
Since 6 is negative it means one of them has to be negative
(a+b) = 1
The only pair of numbers above that add up to 1 is 3 and -2. So just let a = 3 and b = -2.
And there you go. Sorry, if you still don't understand, I know I'm far from being an expert on explaining stuff.
ab = 10
a+b = 7
Pairs whose product is 10.
Then only pair that add up to 7 is 2 and 5. So let a = 2 and b = 5.
ab = 6
a+b = 5
Pairs whose product is 6
Then the only pair that adds up to 5 is 2 and 3. So let a = 2 and b = 3.
The last one is complicated... and it involves material that you may not have learned yet if you just started factors. Are you sure it is correct?
