How do I factor 4x^212x+8?
so far I took out the Greatest Common Factor.
4(x^23x+2)
What next?

do you know how to use the diamond? or were you taught with the FOIL square?

Never heard of diamond. I've heard of FOIL.

10th grade math  Katie, Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 6:24pm
Then you would use FOIL, and find which two numbers multiply to get 2, and add to get 3

Ok that's what I thought. I tried to do that.
2 x 1=2
2 + 1=1
2 x 1=3
2+1=3
1 x 2=2
1+2=1
I don't know what other numbers multiply to 2.

10th grade math  Katie, Thursday, September 10, 2009 at 6:29pm
Try making both 2 and 1 negative
