please help math factor trinomial  Steve, Thursday, June 14, 2012 at 12:46pm
first notice that you can factor out the y, leaving
y(y^213y+36)
Now you want two numbers that add to 13 and multiply to 36. Obviously they must both be negative. Easy factors of 36 are
1,36 2,18 3,12 4,9
It's clear that we want 4 and 9, so our polynomial is
y(y4)(y9)
This factoring by inspection is mainly a skill acquired by doing a lot of problems, so you get to recognize likely factors.
