2y^310y^2+12y...need to factor again..i got to the second step...
2y(y^25y+6)...think that's right but i don't get how to factor that out..help plz..

Go for one more factoring step and you get
2 y (y2)(y3) 
Jason
Try it this way...
2y^3  10y^2 + 12y
Switch A&C to make it easier (always acceptable, just remember to keep your signs):
12y  10y^2 + 2y^3
Factor out a GCF, in this case it's 2y:
2y(6  5y + y^2)
Next, factor a trinomial:
2y(2  1y)(3  1y)
This trinomial is your final answer.
Hope this helps you!
