$y = {x}^{2} + 23 x - 24$

#### Explanation:

Simply expand the factored form given to show the quadratic expression in standard form. Expand using the distributive property.

$y = \left(x - 1\right) \left(x + 24\right)$

$= x \left(x + 24\right) + \left(- 1\right) \left(x + 24\right)$

$= {x}^{2} + 24 x - x - 24$

$= {x}^{2} + 23 x - 24$
