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.

When I'm factoring ax^2 + bx + c, is it fine to switch signs in the factoring answer? For example: Can (2x - 5)(3x + 5) become (2x + 5)(3x - 5)?

I have a factoring question; what is 8a^2-8a-30? I've been working on this for a while and I think I understand factoring, but I'm not getting the right answer, which is supposed to be 2(2a-5)(2a+3). Any help would be so appreciated! :)

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.
