# Which statement about -2h^{2} - 15h - 7 is true?

One of the factors is (h + 2).

One of the factors is (3h - 2).

One of the factors is (2h + 1).

One of the factors is (h - 7).

**Solution:**

-2h^{2} - 15h - 7 can be written as

-(2h^{2 }+ 15h + 7)

__Factoring__ the above equation we choose the factors 14 and 1

-(2h^{2 }+ 14h + h + 7)

-(2h(h + 7) + 1.(h + 7))

-((2h + 1)(h + 7))

The two factors are (2h + 1) and (h + 7)

## Which statement about -2h^{2} - 15h - 7 is true?

**Summary:**

The statement about -2h^{2} - 15h - 7 which is true is one of the factors is (2h + 1).
