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

Solve the equation. Use factoring or the quadratic formula, whichever is appropriate. Try factoring first. If you have any difficulty factoring, then go right to the quadratic formula. (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list.) (x+2)^2 + (x-7)(x-2)=16

Math (Algebra 2)
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].

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...
