# How do you factor x^2+24x+144?

Jul 18, 2017

$\left(x + 12\right) \left(x + 12\right)$
STANDARD FORM OF THE QUADRATIC EQUATION: $a {x}^{2} + b x + c = 0$
In this expression, we see that if we divide the $b$ term of the expression by 2 and find the square of that then we get 144.
So we have ${\left(x + 12\right)}^{2}$.
