x2(squared)4
1X24=1x2+(4)=
3x?
I'm not sure I know how to factor

To indicate x squared, use x^2. You need to get the numerical product of 4 without getting a middle x term. This means that the numerical terms must multiply to give you 4 but be equal and have opposite signs (one positive and one negative), so the two x terms cancel each other out.
x^24 = (x2)(x+2)
Check it by multiplying.
(x2)(x+2) = x^22x+2x4 = x^24
I hope this helps you to understand the process. Thanks for asking.
