Can you please give a example so that I can understand it better.
1)How can you tell whether a polynomial is written in factor form.
2)Construct a trinomial whose greatest common factor is 2x^2.
3)Describe the different methods that can be used to find the product:
(2x5)(3x+1). Is it the FOIL method?
4) Describe the different methods that can be used to find the product:
(5x+1)^2

Samantha,
1. you can tell is a polynomial is written in factor form wether it is like this
4(6n+9j6v) or 8h(9k+3l)or m(6+k)
2. 14x^4  6x^3 + 2x^2
3. Yes you cn use the F.O.I.L method.
4. you can use the formula a^2 + 2ab + b^2. (a+b)^2 or you can you use the F.o.i.l method. (a+B)(a+b)
