    do you know how to use the diamond? or were you taught with the FOIL square?

  • 10th grade math - ,

    Never heard of diamond. I've heard of FOIL.

  • 10th grade math - ,

    Then you would use FOIL, and find which two numbers multiply to get 2, and add to get -3

    Ok that's what I thought. I tried to do that.
    -2 x 1=-2
    -2 + 1=-1

    2 x 1=3
    2+1=3

    -1 x 2=-2
    -1+2=1

    I don't know what other numbers multiply to 2.

    Try making both 2 and 1 negative
