Start by multiplying (g+4) times (g-2), if that doesn't equal g^2-2g-24, then try the next one.

Practicing these is probably the best way to get faster at them, and thus, decrease your hurry.

Try looking at just the last terms. The first ones will always be g^2, so that doesn't tell you much. But you know the last term is a product of the constants.

not quite :) (q+4)(q-2) = q^2 +2q - 8 not the g^2-2g-24 that you were looking for :) guess again?

C then
