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.

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
