Mama Shmoop always says, "Use the right form of an expression for the job." When writing expressions that model real-world problems, the first form used may not fit a standard pattern and could be hard to understand.

It may not be immediately obvious how to solve 2x2 – 2x – 24, which is the expression we derived for the pounds of chocolate chips in Nana Shmoop's cookie recipe. (This entire section is a family affair.)

If we factor the expression and rewrite it as 2(x – 4)(x +3), the factors can be set equal to 0 and solved to give us the answers, 4 and -3. The real-world part of the problem tells us which answers make sense. In this case, the correct answer must be four pounds. We can't add -3 pounds of chocolate chips to a recipe. Eating them before putting them in the dough doesn't count.

Any tool that can be used to rewrite the expression and keep it equivalent is fair game, from the commutative property to the laws of exponents. Blowtorches and monkey wrenches are strongly discouraged.
