how would i solve this problem?? it says factor the polynomial completely:
I studied polynomials, but I don't know what it means to factor them.
Do you have a definition in your textbook or notes or something?
B-cuz then I'll be able to help you.
Factoring a polynomial is the opposite process of multiplying polynomials. Recall that when you factor a number, you are looking for prime factors that multiply together to give the number.
geez, I have no clue...
well, I have some ideas, but I'd hate to set you on the wrong track...
hopefully someone else can help you b-cuz I can't figure it out, I've never learned how to factor polynomials before
oh its ok. thanks for your time. =)
