x2(squared)-4x+4 I would factor this into (X - 2)(X - 2) If you don't know the rules for factoring, post, and we can show you how to do it. I don't know the factoring rules. My algebra teacher couldn't teach.

Algebra II factoring
I need help. i am having trouble factoring trinomials into binomials. an example problem is 4n^2-5n-6 can someone show me step by step how to factor these kind of problems easily? Take the coefficient of your quadratic term in this case 4 and multiply it by your constant term ...

let f(m)=m^3 + 3m^2 + 3m + 1 notice f(-1) = 0, so m+1 is a factor. Using division, the answer is m^2 + 2m + 1 which factors once more to (m+1)(m+1) so you have (m+1)^3 = 0 and then m = -1 Are you familiar with Pascal's triangle? Did you notice the pattern in the coefficients 1...

Factor completely: 2x2 – 50 To indicate x squared, use this notation — x^2. 2x^2-50 = 2(x^2-25) You should be able to continue the factoring with the site that Lance has given you. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.

I cannot figure these out.Can someone Factor completely: 3x2 - x - 4 I suppose this is actually 3x^2 -x-4 If so: (3x-4)(x+1) Now I'd like you to look at the following website: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/AllBrowsers/1314/Factoring.asp

I wouldn't factor it to get the solutions. I would use the quadratic formula. p= (-84 +- sqrt (7056+2345)/-6 p= (-84 +- 102.53)/-6 p=31 or p=-3.09 Now factoring.. (3p-93)(p+3.09) check that, of course I rounded in the quadratic...

Is this a different problem? You should be factoring -3p^2+84p-288 if it's the same one as before. Start by taking out a common -3.

I'm having a hard time factoring polynomials, especially 3rd degree. -x^3+2x^2+4x-8 -x^3-5x^2+20x+12 I don't know how to begin. I thought long division, but what would I divide by?

First find one root by trial and error. Call it a. Then divide (x-a) into the cubic using long division to get a quadratic equation. Get the roots of that by the usual method. For the equation -x^3+2x^2+4x-8, one of the roots is x=2. Divide (x-2) into -x^3+2x^2+4x-8, and you ...

<<Factor x^3 + 9x^2 + 27x + 27 >> There is no simple general formula for solving cubic equations or factoring cubic poynomials. First look for one root of x^3 + 9x^2 + 27x + 27 = 0 by graphing or trial and error. One root is x = -3. That means that x+3 is one of ...

I need help with factoring trinomials completely. My teacher's example is: 2x^2-12x+18 2(x^2-6x+9) 2(x-3)(x-3) I need help with: 6x^2-26x-20 I just can't get this stuff so if you can please help me I'd greatly appreciate it.

100N/m d^2 - 57.3d= 0 sigh...I can't figure out how to find d know it's factoring but as to actual number to factor out...not so sure. Thanks

I need to find the value of x. 9x^3 + 9x = 30x^2 It's confusing because apparently I have to do 9x^3 + 9x and then add the + 30x^2 to it, and then make it equal 0, so it ends up like this: 9x^3 + 9x + 30x^2 = 0 And afterward, I would factor it. How do you factor it? I'm having...

Hey I need help factoring 5x^4-180x^2. I'm used to factoring with three numbers, and not two. How would you do just two like this? Thanks

math (factoring quadratic trinomials)
i am doing factoring with quadratic trinomials, And I dont understand any of it! The problem im working on is 5p2-22p+8 I factored it out to be (5p2-20p)(40p2-2p) I am so stuck, can anyone help

Math - factoring
Solve by factoring: 1.) x^2 - x - 12 = 0

The first step in factoring is to move everything to one side. 6d^2 + 2d = 10d + 35 6d^2 - 8d - 35 = 0. However, I cannot find real roots for this equation. Are you sure you typed it correctly?

PLEASE HELP/FACTORING POLYNOMIALS
How can 2s - 16 be the same as 16s^6-2f^6 ? Those functions are totally different. One is sixth order in s and is linear in s. One has f as a variable and the other does not. 16s^6 -2f^6 = 2(8s^6 - f^6) = 2*(sqrt8 s^3 -f^3)(sqrt8 s^3+ f^3) Further factoring of the cubic terms ...
