C: $(x+2)(x-8)$
We can test each case to determine which is the factored form of $x^2-6x-16$, as this is a multiple choice question: A: $(x+2)(x+8)=x^2+2x+8x+16=x^2+10x+16$ B: $(x-2)(x+8)=x^2-2x+8x-16=x^2+6x-16$ C: $(x+2)(x-8)=x^2+2x-8x-16=x^2-6x-16$ D: $(x-2)(x-8)=x^2-2x-8x+16=x^2-10x+16$ From this, we see that C is the correct answer.
