b) 10x^3y^2 - 14x^2y^2 - 12y^2

  • Math 141 - ,

    The answers a) and b) are correct.

    c )

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 7 / 2 ) - ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) =

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) * [ ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 4 / 2 ) - 1 ] =

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) * [ ( x - 1 ) ^ 2 - 1 ] =

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) * [ x ^ 2 - 2x + 1 - 1 ] =

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) * ( x ^ 2 - 2x ) =

    ( x - 1 ) ^ ( 3 / 2 ) * x * ( x - 2 )
