x^2-8x-48. I have (x-6)(x-8) as my answer. Is this right?

x^3-x^2-42x. I have x(x-6)(x+7). Right or wrong?

Hasn'ttold you that you can check your answers yourself ??__anyone__

Does (x - 6)(x - 8)**equal**x² - 8x - 48 ?

If it does, you've factored correctly.

If it doesn't, you did it wrong.

Got it?
