Correct question :-

Answer :-

Let x be the unknown negative number.

The square of the negative number: x²

is = 60 more than 4 times the negative number: 4x + 60

x² = 4x + 60

x² - 4x - 60 = 0

Factors to:

(x-10)(x+6) = 0

x = 10 and -6

Since the number is negative, x = -6

Check:

x² = 4x + 60

(-6)² = 4(-6)+60

36 = -24 + 60

36 = 36
