Homework Help: Math

Posted by Kristiane on Tuesday, January 15, 2008 at 4:14pm.

I need help on factoring monomials in quadratic form.

The problem is:

aČ + 17a + 16
I know that the first step is to multiply 16 times the coefficient of "a", which is 1. I get 16.
Now I have to fill in factors that when multiplied, equal 16, but when added, equal 17.

So now I have 16 x 1 = 16
and 16 + 1 = 17.

And now I have to fill in the addition factors to make aČ + 16a + 1a + 16.

I am just confused as to what to do next to solve the problem.
