i'm having troubles with some sums
how would you factorize completely
9a(squared)  b(squared)?
or an expression like
27x(squared)  1/3y(squared)
its difficult. have many more.

9a^2  b^2
= (3a)^2 (b)^2
= (3a+b)(3ab)
i couldn't understand the second one though. Hope it helps!!! :) 
whenever you have the difference of two squares
the factors are the sum and the difference of the two that are squared.
a^2b^2 ( a + b )( a  b ) 
27x(squared)  1/3y(squared)
first take (1/3) out
(1/3) (3^4 x^2  y^2)
(1/3)(3^2 + y)(3^2  y)
(1/3)(9+y)(9y) 
1/3) (3^4 x^2  y^2)
(1/3)(3^2 x + y)(3^2  y)
(1/3)(9x+y)(9xy)

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)
