Two positive intergers have a sum of 17 and a product of 66.What are the intergers?

    I'm sure there's a formula for this -- but let's try common sense trial and error.

    9 * 8 = 72
    7 * 10 = 70
    6 * 11 = ?

    This is what I have
    x=1st interger
    17-x= 2nd interger
    equation:
    x(x-17)=66
    x^2-17x-66
    then I have to factor it but I don't know the factors that is what I need help with finding that
