assuming you mean x^2-x-20

x^2-x-20 factors to (x-5)(x+4)

Sandra,

Your question appears to have incomplete information. Please copy the question completely. I am assuming the question is multiple choice but the multiple choices are missing in your question. Also x^ should have some number (or an expression) following the ^. Please provide the question in its entirety.

Thanks
