Factorise the expression

5 u3v +15 uv2-10v

taking out the highest common factor. Choose the expression that remains in brackets when this is done.

Select one:

u 3 + 3 uv − 10

u 3 + 3 uv − 2

u 3 + 15 uv − 2

u 3 + 3 uv 2 − 2

u 3v + 3 uv − 2

5 u 3 + 3 uv − 2

u 3v + 3 uv 2 − 2 v

5 u 3 + 15 uv − 10

**Reiny**, Monday, February 7, 2011 at 12:22pm5(u^3)(v) + 15(u)(v^2) - 10v

you are looking for the largest expression which divides into all 3 terms

I see 5 going into everybody, and also v is found in each term, so

5v(u^3 + 3uv - 2) would be the factored form
