The product of two consecutive even numbers is 48.

Paki answer po please................

2
x(x+2) = 48
x^2 + 2x - 48 = 0
(x + 8)(x - 6) = 0
x = -8 (negative eight)
x = 6 (positive two)

check:
(-8) + 2 = -6
(-8) x (-6) = 48

6 + 2 = 8
6 x 8 = 48

therefore, the answer can be a) -6 and -8 or b) 6 and 8
*positve 6
