Factor each expression by grouping. Can you please show me the steps on how you get your answer so I know how to do the problem thank you.

9p^2+mn^2+9m+p^2n^2

  • math - ,

    For grouping you usually have an even number of terms.
    look at pairs of terms and see if the same common factor is found in "pairs"

    9p^2+mn^2+9m+p^2n^2
    =9p^2 + p^2n^2 + mn^2 + 9m
    = p^2(9 + n^2) + m(n^2 + 9)
    = (n^2 + 9)(p^2 + m)
