PLEASE HELP ME FACTOR COMPLETLEY.

25w^2-144

  • Math -

    That is the difference of two squares. Remember that a^2 - b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)

    Think of "a" as 5w and "b" as 12.

    Now write down the answer.

  • Math -

    25+12=37
    25-12=13
    37*13=481
    so the answer is 481??

  • Math -

    No. Where did the w go?
    They are asking for the expression
    25w^2 - 144
    to be factored, not evalauated.

    The answer is
    (5w + 12)(5w - 12)

    Did I do this problem right? (2y+5w+6)(5y+5w-4) 2y(5y)+ 2y(5w) + 2y(-4) + 5w(5y) + 5w(5w)+ 5w(-4) + 6(5y) + 6(5w) + 6(-4) then I multiplied: 10y^2 + 10wy - 8y + 25wy + 25w^2 - 20w + 30y + 30w - 24 then I combined like terms: 10y^2
