F) Why is (3x + 5) (x  2) + (2x  3) (x  2) not in factored form? What is the correct final factored form? What is this factoring method called?

I see a "common" factor of (x2) , so ...
(3x + 5) (x  2) + (2x  3) (x  2)
= (x2)[(3x+5) + (2x3)]
= (x2)(5x+2)

1. a) write y=4x+8 in factored form 2. a) write y=2x6 in factored form 3. a) write y=1/3x+3 in factored form These are the answers I got: 1. y=4(x+2) 2. y= 2(x+3) 3. y=1/3(x+9) If I got any of these wrong, tell me what I'd did wrong.
