Write a quadratic equation that has two solution, 4 and -4. Leave the polynomial in reduced factored form.

  • math -

    If you know how to solve a quadratic by factoring, then you know how to do this.
    Just reverse your steps

    if x=4
    then x-4 is a factor
    if x = -4
    then x+4 is the second factor

    so (x-4)(x+4 = 0

    expanded: x^2 - 16 = 0
