The product of the age of a man, 6years before and 10 years after is 960.whats his age now
(X-6)(x+10)=960. X= his age. x^2 +4x -60=960. x^2 +4x -1020=0. (X+34)(x-30)=0. x=-34. x=30. 30 yrs old. It cks!
the 'product' would mean multiplication, so six times ten would be 60you'd set up the problem like 60x = 960divide both sides by sixty and theres your answer
