1. ## quadratic help

Hi I know this sounds crazy but I have forgotten how to factorize the following

x^2+6x

2. ## Re: quadratic help

x is a common factor. i.e $x^2+6x = x\times x +6\times x$

Can you continue?

3. ## Re: quadratic help

great i just remove the comon factor, place outside the bracket, and the remainder which is x+6, whack it inside the brackets. cheers

Yes, that's exactly what you should do.
