How can you factor?


That expression cannot be factored further because the bases of the exponents are different.

so it's prime...Thank you.

Can you please help me with this one?
50x^2 - 2y^2 - 4yz - 2z^2

I tried doing it but I get very confused.


Is it 2(5x+y-z)(5x-y+z)?

thats wrong. the answer is 2(5x - y -z)(5x + y + z)
