  2. I took out the three to get 3(-p^2+31) but my answer is not making any sense with the question I am being asked because of my p value must be between 18 and 28. HELP

  3. Is this a different problem? You should be factoring -3p^2+84p-288 if it's the same one as before.

    Start by taking out a common -3.

  4. I didn't think you were going to answer the other question.

    Now I have -3(p^2-28p+96)
    I am now stuck I eventually need this to be set to equal zero
