factor each of the following:
a)x^2+10x+25
b)x^2+16x+28
c)x^2-9x+14

  • math -

    x^2+10x+25=(x+5)*(x-5)

    Becouse:

    (x+5)*(x-5)=x*x+5*x-5*x-25=x^2+5x-5x+25=x^2+25


    x^2+16x+28=(x+2)*(x+14)

    Becouse:

    (x+2)*(x+14)=x*x+2*x+14x+28=x^2+2x+14x+28=x^2+16x+28

    x^2-9x+14=(x-7)*(x-2)

    Becouse:

    (x-7)*(x-2)=x*x-7x-2x+2*7=x^2-9x+14

  6. math, really need some feedback asap.

    5/8 x+1/16 x=11/16+x 16*(5/8 x+1/16 x) = 16(11/16+x) 10x + x = 11 + 16x, so the next step is: 11x = 11 + 16x (get x-terms on the left.) -x = 11 (divide by -1.) x = 11 Is this correct?
