    If 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.
