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.

i want to noe what is the DIFERENCE between partial and complete factoring. an e.g of a partial factoring problem is y=2x^2+8x+5 an e.g of complete factoring is y=x^2+3x-10

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.

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?

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.

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

Factoring by Using a Quadratic Form Problem: x^4 + 8x^2 - 20 What I have so far: (x^2)^2 + 8(x^2) - 20 a^2 + 8a - 20 For some reason my textbook says to substitute the (x^2) with (a) as you can see in the las step. The next step after that is factoring [a^2 + 8a - 20].

2x(x+3) = 0 Is there a way to solve that using the below methods? Substitute zero for f(x) and find the roots of the resulting equation, or graph the function and determine the x-intercepts of the graph. Finding the roots of a single variable equation may involve factoring. ...

My son's homework asks us to find the product by factoring the tens. The problem is 6 x 2, 6 x 20 and 6 x 200. I see how to do 6 x 2 (memory factor) and the 6 x 20 would be (6 x 2) and (1 x 10) then 12 x 10 = 120 but how does he show his work for 6 x 200 factoring by tens? Help

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...

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...

Well we are doing factoring and I don't quite understand this problem: (x+1)(x-3)=117 I simplified and got: x^2-3x+x-3=117 x^2-2x-3=117 x^2-2x-120=0 I split the middle term and got: x^2-12x+10x-120=0 What should I do next? I have no idea how to finish factoring this... thanks...

I'm so lost on this math Hw it's over factoring variables and I don't get it. Like my teach said that we are supposed to have the number and letter in front of everything. For example: -14x^2-7x+21 For factoring I got 7x(-2x-1+3) Because my teacher told me to to combine both 7...

which method do you use to solve this equation.(x-1)^2=7. Is it the factoring method or the sqare root method I would take the square root of each side. (x-1)= +- sqrt7 Now for the factoring method: (x-1)^2=7 (x-1)^2-7=0 you have a difference of two squares.. ((x-1) +sqrt7)((x...
