The Shrek Franchise From princesses to pirates, Disney seems to portray every role imaginable and that would include a green ogre and a foul mouthed donkey. Shrek was first released in May of 2001. Produced and distributed by DreamWorks, Shrek was made with a 60 million dollar budget. At the end of Shrek’s reign at the box office, it had raked in 484.4 million dollars worldwide but that was just the start of the franchise. Shrek 2 (2004), Shrek the Third (2007), and Shrek Forever After (2010) were produced along with spin-offs such as Puss and Boots (2011). All in all, the Shrek franchise has raked in 3.5 billion dollars at the box office alone. What made Shrek so popular has been its ability to cater to young and adult audiences. Shrek features childish and whimsical humor and also crude adult humor. Also, Shrek makes several cultural references to other Disney movies such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Tinkerbell, The Three Little Pigs, Peter Pan, and many more. These references introduce the younger audience to more Disney franchises while providing nostalgia for older viewers. Shrek also features new age pop music such as “All Star” by Smash Mouth and oldies like “Try a Little Tenderness.” Marketing for Shrek started shortly before the movie’s release date in May, Burger King promoted Shrek with character shaped candies that would be included in kid meals. Baskin Robbins sold Shrek themed ice cream. Shortly after the major success of Shrek, Disney began to strike up licensing deals to sell Shrek products. Clothing manufacturers began to create Shrek themed clothing, toy companies such as Hasbro began to produce Shrek toys, and Conagra Foods, owners of Kid Cuisine, began to incorporate Shrek into foods. After each Shrek movie, the sells of Shrek merchandise skyrocketed which produced billions of dollars in revenue for Disney. The products were mainly targeted towards children and priced reasonably to ensure more sells. Shrek would be further promoted in publications such as Rolling Stone magazine and Entertainment Weekly and this fueled the Shrek mania. Many video games were produced following the release of Shrek such as Shrek: Hassle at The Castle and Shrek 2: The Game. In 2006, the total combined sales of Shrek console games reached 2.5 million units. All in all, the Shrek franchise has been and will continue to be successful.

To begin, we will solve by factoring or determine if the expression can be factored in this format. If the original expression can not be factored, perfect square factorization may need to be utilized. Firstly, we must identify the numbers and signs of importance, which are the middle and last term, and find which numbers will multiply together that equal the sign and number of the last term of the expression. To do this, we have to find the factors of 6 which are: 1, 2, 3, and 6. From there, we must determine which factors of 6 can be multiplied together to equal negative 6. To answer that, we must know the ways in which the product of aforementioned factors can be multiplied together to equal negative six. So, following the rules of multiplication, one factor must be positive and one factor must be negative in order to have a negative six. So, the multiplication of factors could be: (-1(6)), (1,(-6)), (-2,(3)), or (2(3)). Next, we must determine (when added together) if any of those products will create the sum of positive five. Looking at the factors, we can see that (-1(6)) will equal negative six and add together to equal positive 5. So, we would then know the factors of the expression are (x+6) and (x-1). Finally, we set the factors of the expression equal to zero and solve for x. $$x-1=0$$ $$x+6=0$$ $$x=1$$ $$x=-6$$ Next, we must find x by using the quadratic formula. The quadratic formula is: $$x=\frac{-b\pm\sqrt{b^2-4ac}}{2a}$$ The variable (a) is equal to the first term, the variable (b) is equal to the second term, and the variable (c) is equal to the third term. We would simply solve this by entering in the numbers. $$x=\frac{-5\pm\sqrt{5^2-4(1)(-6)}}{2(-6)}$$ We would then work out the formula for both the addition and subtraction of the square root. $$x=\frac{-5+\sqrt{5^2-4(1)(-6)}}{2(-6)}$$ and $$x=\frac{-5-\sqrt{5^2-4(1)(-6)}}{2(-6)}$$ Should the number under the square root found to be negative, we must reject using the quadratic formula for finding any real solutions for the expression since the square root of a negative number does not exist. We would only include those solutions when looking for imaginary solutions. After completing the mathematical steps to solve the above quadratic formulas, we find that $$x=-1$$ and $$x=6$$ are the real solutions to the expression.
