Factor : Z^2+11z-26 ?

anybody knows how to do this

Report as

z^2+11z-26
=z-11z^26+2
=-10z^28
z=28:10
z= 2.8

I might be wrong lol :)

yep it's wrong

Wow. Deleted my answer:(

It should be something like (z+4)(z-6) but similar to this
Report as

(xplus(-13)(xplus2)
or 13, -2.

lets see here
(z - 2) (z +13) do the first ones
z^2 then do outer
z^2 + 13z then inner
z^2 + 13z -2z then do last
z^2 + 13z - 2z -26 then combine
z^2 + 11z -26
only hard part is just figuring out which 2 numbers to use that multiply up at the end and also can add up to the middle number

Thanks

It cannot be solved anymore. It's in simplest form. There are no like terms to combine. No simplification needed.

Report as

(z+13)(z-2). Ok, to correct some of the other answers, this cannot be solved.....it's not an equation. All you can do is factor.

Report as

z^2 + 11z - 26 =
(z + 13)(z - 2). Factored Form
If you are supposed to solve it:
z+13=0 or z-2=0
z=-13 or z=2. Solutions
