Directions: Determine values to place in the missing spots to solve the equation below. You may use integer values:

### Hint

Try factoring to rewrite your expressions.

### Answer

one solution has a=2,b=- 3 c=1 d= -6

a=-2 b=1, c=-3,d=2

There are an infinite number of solutions

a=-2 b=1, c=-3,d=2

There are an infinite number of solutions
