Factorize (x+2)^2 + x^2 +6x + 8

  • Math -

    =x^2+4x+4+x^2+6x+8
    =2x^2+10x+12
    =2(x^2+5+6)
    =(x+2)(x+3)
    =x=-3,-2

  • Math -

    picking up from Brian's third-last line

    = 2(x^2+5+6)

    should have been

    = 2(x^2+5x+6)
    = 2(x+2)(x+3)

    This is the fully factored form, there was no equation to "solve"
