I am so stuck on this factoring thing. how do you solve:
1)15a(squared)b-10ab(squared)
2)x(squared)-8x-8
3) 6p(squared)-17p-45
4)2r(cubed)+250
5)x(to the 6th power)-64
6)x(squared)-xy+2x-2y
7)x(to 4th power)-1

I will do some, then you try.

1. 15a^2 b-10ab^2 factor out 5 ab

5ab(3a-2b)

4. 2r^3+250
2(r^3+125) you have a formula for factoring sum of cubes..
2(r+5)(r^2+5r+25) check that.

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)

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 …
