Chapter 10 - Section 10.3 - Finding Binomial Factors - Exercise: 6

Answer

$(a+2)(a+12)$

Work Step by Step

The first term in each binomial must be a since $a^2$ has no coefficient. The operation in each binomial must be addition since each term in the trinomial is positive. $2+12=14$ and $2\times12=24$, so the other two terms are 2 and 12. Therefore, we find $(a+2)(a+12)$.
