Y^3+Y^2-4Y-4 AND T^2+4Z^2 THESE ARE FACTORING QUESTIONS CAN SOME ONE PLEASE SHOW ME THE STEP ON HOW TO SOLVE THESE TWO PROBLEMS

  • MATH -

    y^3 + y^2 - 4y - 4

    factor by grouping the first two and the last two. Be careful with the second grouping because of the _(-) in front of the 4y.

    (y^3 +y^2) + (-4y -4)

    Take out the common factors:

    y^2(y+1) + -4(y+1)

    See the y+1?

    Write that down once and your other factor is what is left over.

    (y+1)(y^2-4)

    You can multiply these factors to check that you did it correctly.

    t^2 + 4z^2

    This is a sum of two squares and it cannot be factored.

    You can factor a difference of two squares. If this was t^2 -4z^2
    it would factor to (t-2z)(t+2z)
