**Reiny**, Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 3:04pmIf you are in a class-room situation, then you should have been taught some kind of "method" to do these, just plain guessing works only up to a point.

there are actually two choices for the first terms

(10x..)(x...) or (5x....)(2x....)

at the back it would have to be

(..-7)(...-1) or (...+7)(...+1)

remember, after you make your choice, expand to see if you get the original.
