  1. the only thing I can see is to take out a common factor of 3

    12x^2-18x-21
    = 3(4x^2 - 6x - 7)

    the trinomial does not factor

    What polynomial could you subtract from 5x^3 - 12x - x^2 + 9 - 12x^5 - 6x^4 to give a difference of 19 + 8x^3 - 18x - 19x^5 - 2x^2 - 8x^4? Is the answer k (the polynomial) = 7x^5 + 2x^4 - 3x^3 + x^2 + 6x - 28?

    2(3x - 7) + 4 (3 x + 2) = 6 (5 x + 9 ) + 3 how will solve it? well you first multiply it out: 6x-14+12x+8=30x+54+3 you combine like terms 18x-6=30x+57 -12x=63 x=-63/12
