Re: Two numbers that multiply to -5 and sum to -24

This post was updated on .
I think you mean multiply to -24 and sum to -5
such as in (x - 8)(x + 3) if you are factoring x² - 5x - 24.
               
Those would be -8 and 3.

Otherwise, if you do want two numbers that multiply to be -5 and add to be -24,
they would be something close to -0.207 and 24.207
