25x^2 - 60x + 36

highest number they all go into is 1

so would this be Prime?

  • Factor Completely -

    25 = 5 * 5 or 25*1
    36 is 1*36, 2*18, 3*12 , 4*9 , 6*6
    hmm, 6 times 5 is 30 and two 30s is 60
    so try
    (5 x - 6)(5x-6)

    ok when I foil that I get the equation

    so I would I show my work?

  • Factor Completely -

    The only thing I can suggest is show all the factors of 25 and 36 as I did.

  • Factor Completely -

    thanks
