Set x equal to -1, and x equal to -6. Manipulate these equations so that they equal zero. These are the factors.
-1 and -6
\(x=-1\)
\(x+1=0\)
\(x=-6\)
\(x+6=0\)
\((x+1)(x+6)\)
Multiply the factors together, and you have your equation.
\((x+1)(x+6)\)
\(x^{2}+x+6x+6\)
\(x^{2}+7x+6\)

The factored form of a quadratic function is f(x)=(x‒p)(x‒q). The standard form of a quadratic function is \(\displaystyle{f{{\left({x}\right)}}}={a}{x}^{{2}}+{b}{x}+{c}\). The factored form for a quadratic function tells us the x-intercepts of the quadratic function, while the standard form for a quadratic function tells us the y-intercept of the quadratic function.
