Factor (15a squared bc squared -9a squared b to the fourth c) by finding the gcf.

I think the answer is 3abc(5ac-3ab3). I got it because I found the gcf of the coefficents which are 3. I subtracted one from each exponent so, i canceled b from 15a squared bc squared and c from-9a squared b to the fourth c. Am I right?

  • math -

    15 a^2 b c^2 - 9 a^2 b^4 c

    = 3 a^2 b c ( 5 c - 3 b^3)

  • math -

    No. or Almost. YOu have another a you can pull out as a common factor

    3a^2*bc is the gcf.

    Can someone check my answer please! I'm not sure this is right x(squared)+7x+10=0 (x+r)(x+s) =x(squared)+sx+rx+rs =x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs=x(squared)+7x+10 r+s=7 rs=10 (2)(5)=10 and 3+4=7 x(squared)+7x+10=(x+5)(x+2)

    Find the shortcut. Solve these problems. Then find and explain a shortcut method for finding the answer. 52(Squared) - 42 (squared) = 82 (Squared) - 72 (Squared) = 122 (Squared) - 112 (Squared) = 312 (Squared) - 302 (Squared) = 892 …
