# Solve by Factoring x^{2}-5x=24?

**Solution:**

Given x^{2}-5x=24

⇒ x^{2}-5x-24 =0

we have the quadratic formula{-b±√(b² -4ac)} / 2a to find roots.

= {-(-5)±√((-5)² -4(1)(-24))} / 2

= {5±√(25 +96)} / 2

= {5±√121} / 2

= (5±11)/2

= 8,-3

## Solve by Factoring x^{2}-5x=24?

**Summary: **

By factoring x^{2}-5x=24, we get x values as 8, -3.
