#1**+1 **

two numbers which add to give 5 and multiply to give -14.

These are hard till you get the hang of them.

Look at the sign of the multiply first. it is negative, which means that one number must be **+ and the other is -**

Now they add to a positive number. That means that the **bigger one is positive**.

Look at the multiply again.

14 = -1 * +14 14 = -2 * +7

there are no other integer possibilities.

-1+14=13 that is no good

-2+7 = 5 BINGO
