The quadratic expression (x+4)(x-8) is written in factored form

#1**+2 **

First convert (x+4)(x-8) to quadratic form which makes it x^2-4x-32. From there "Complete the square" which makes it y+32=x^2-4x...y+36=(x-2)^2.

Then you add 36 to both sides to get **y=(x-2)^2-36 **which is your answer.

Hope it helps!
