**Quidditch**, Monday, July 19, 2010 at 10:03pm7x^3 - 35x^2 - 6x + 30

Factor 7x^2 from the first two terms and -6 from the last two terms.

**Quidditch**, Monday, July 19, 2010 at 10:52pmWell, let's try your answer:

(x-5)(x+5)

= x^2 - 25. So, that doesn't work.

Doing the factoring I mentioned previously gives:

7x^2(x - 5) - 6(x - 5)

Now there are two terms. The terms have a common factor of (x-5). Using our friendly distributive law we can write:

(7x^2-6)(x-5)
