By inspection, I see that x = -1 is one solution. Therefore x+1 is a factor. Divide 2x^3 + 9x^2 +10x +3 by x-1 to get the other factor, a quadratic polynomial. You should get 2x^2 + 7x + 3, using polynomial long division. Now set that equal to zero and solve it for the other ...

Some are already factored. Some are partially factored. Set the factors equal to zero. Example: x^3 -2x^2 +x = 0 x(x^2 -2x +1) = 0 x(x-1)^2 = 0 x = 0 or 1. The last cubic equation will be harder to factor. Hint: One solution is x = -4, so x+4 is a factor. Use polynomial long ...

4x^4-18x^2=0. I have to find out what x equals by factoring. What I did was Factor 2x^2(2x^2+-9)=0 then 2x^2(2x+3)(x+-3), resulting in -1.5 and three. But these answers are wrong according to my book. Can you show me step by step how to do this correctly? It would be a huge help!

let's see ... 2x/5 - 3x + 2 ≥ x-1 multiply by 5 , the LCD 2x - 15x + 10 ≥ 5x - 5 -18x ≤ -15 x ≥ 15/18 mmmhh? could it be that your denominator is 5-3x ?? then you should have typed it like 2x/(5-3x) + 2 ...... let me know

Take out the obvious common factor xy: (4x^3)y - 9xy^3 =xy(4x^2 - 9y^2) and factor as difference of two squares =xy((2x)²-(3y)²) =xy(2x+3y)(2x-3y)

You have not written an equation, so there is nothing to "solve". All you can do is try to simplify or factor what you have written. Factor out the ax. Use ^ for exponents. a^2x + 5a^2x^2 - 2ax = ax(a + 5ax -2)

Calculus
if width=x, length=y, the cost=c, we have xy = 2484 c = 16.50*2x + 18.00*(2x+2y) = 33x + 36x + 36(2484/x) = 69x + 89424/x dc/dx = 69 - 89424/x^2 dc/dx=0 when x=36 so, the cost is minimum when the pen is 36 by 69. I assume you can figure the cost.

The terms are in descending order, so a = 4, b = -35, and c = -9. find 2 numbers that when multiplied give you a * c (which is 4 * -9 = -36) and when added give you b (which is -35). Try -36 and 1. When multiplied they equal -36, and when added they equal -35. Voila! So split ...
