    (x + 2) (x - 7)

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    x² - 5x - 14

    Consider the factors of the constant term ( - 14) which sum to give the coefficient of the x - term ( - 5)

    The factors are + 2 and - 7, since

    2 * - 7 = - 14 and 2 - 7 = - 5, thus

    x² - 5x - 14 = (x + 2) (x - 7)
