what is the expression for the factored form of 1/4y^2-36?

I got (1/4y-6)(1/4y+6)
Is this correct?
Thanks for checking my work

  • math -

    front part is wrong, back end is correct

    should be

    ((1/2)y - 6)((1/2)y + 6) OR (y/2 - 6)(y/2 + 6)

    since (1/2)(1/2) = 1/4

    If I expand your answer my leading term would be (1/16)y^2

    thanks for the help
