could you help me solve this
3x^2- 12x - 24 = 0

  • algebra -

    FYI-"algabra" is not how you spell algebra.

    3x^2- 12x - 24 = 0

    This equation cannot be solved by factoring.

    Use the Quadratic Formula, or the method of completing the square.

    Here is the quadratic formula.

    x = (-b +- (sqrt(b^2 - 4ac)))/2a
    3x^2 - 12x - 24 = 0
    a = 3, b = -12, c = -24

    Plug these values for a, b, and c in this formula and solve.

    Post your work if you get stuck and someone will assist you.
