Factor Completely: I am really confused on how to start it.
12q^5w^236q^4w^3120q^3w^4
Help please. :)
Factor out 12q^3w^2:
12q^3w^2(q^2  3qw  10w^2)
Can we factor further? Yes.
q^2  3qw  10w^2 factors are (q  5w)(q + 2w).
We end up with this:
12q^3w^2(q  5w)(q + 2w)
And that's as far as we can factor on this one!
I hope this will help.
