Answer:a

Step-by-step explanation:Answer:x= -2 or x= 8

Step-by-step explanation:First step, move 25 to the left side so we can do the Quadratic Formula (or you can factor instead.)

Next, we know that 9-25 equals -16.

Now find that what two numbers multiply and get 16: 2×8 4×4 and 16×1.

Now we do some kind of factoring. The most valuable number must be negative since -6x is negative.

Let’s explain about factoring in Quadratic a little bit.

Substitue x²-6x-16 as ax²+bx+c=0

From (ax+d)(bx+c), if we multiply ax and bx, we get the ax²

If we multiply ax and c, we get acx and we multiply d and bx, we get dbx. (axc+bdx) = bx

If we multiply d and c, we get c.

From the factor lf 16, 2×8 seems to be right since -8+2 equals -6 which matches the equation.

Then we get.

Seperate both equations.

Find the value of both x.

The answer is x = -2, 8

(The explanation might be weird since I don’t know what they are called in English.)
