Answer

False

Work Step by Step

The given trinonmial can be factored by looking for factors of 72 whose sum is equal to the coefficient of the middle term, which is 27. Note that: $24(3) = 72$ and $24+3=27$ Thus, the given trinomial can be factored as: $=(x+24)(x+3)$ Therefore, the given statement is false.
