2\(x^2\) − 20x = 48 can be reduced to \(x^2\)-10x-24 = 0.

\(x^2\)-12x+2x-24 = 0

x(x-12) + 2(x-12) = 0

Either x = 12 or x = -2.

E is the answer.

A. -4
B. 2
C. 6
D. 8
E. 12


\(2x^2 - 20 = 48\)

\(2(x^2 - 10x) = 48\)

\(x^2 - 10x - 48 = 0\)

\(x^2 - 12x + 2x -48 = 0\)
x( x - 12) +2 ( x - 12) = 0

(x - 12) ( x + 8) = 0

Either x -12= 0 or x =12,

or

x + 2 = 0 or x = -2.

The best answer is E.
