(x + 4) (x + 12)

Step-by-step explanation:

to factor x² + 16x + 48 = 0, you need to find 2 numbers that when multiplied together give you 48 and when added together give you 16

you can list the factors of 48 and see what adds up together to give you 16, but here is a hint:

the numbers probably end in a 2, 4, 0, 6, 5, or 1, as a pair of these numbers added together give us 6. i looked at a factor chart and saw that 12 and 4 that when added together, give us 16 and when multiplied, give us 48

in factored form it looks like the following:

(x + 4) (x + 12)

this would be the answer in factored form

x = -4 and x = -12

Step-by-step explanation:

x^2 + 16x + 48 = 0 is to be factored.

Note that 48 is the product of 4 and 12 and that the sum of 4 and 12 is 16.

Therefore,

x^2 + 16x + 48 = 0 in factored form is:

(x + 4)(x + 12) = 0, so that x + 4 = 0 → x = -4, and

x + 12 = 0  → x = -12
