  1. 2x^2-12x+32=x^2
    x^2-12x+32=0
    (x-4)(x-8)

    Use foil to check
    x*x=X^2
    -4*x=-4x
    x*-8=-8x
    -4*-8=32
    Combine like terms
    x^2-12x+32

    Hope this helps

    I'm not sure how to factor 3x^3-12x^2+3x. I tried separatring the 3x so that 3x(x+1)(x-4, but I got -3x^3+-12x^2-3x^2+12x. Can you show me where I went wrong and how to properly factor this? Is there a general rule or tip for this

    How do you solve 5x^4-12x^3 by factoring? I tried to pull out an x^3, but x^3(5x-12) is hard to break down further into two groups. There's no factors of 5x really other than 5 and 1, and that won't work. Could you demonstrate?

    1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X SOLVE 1/3 - 5/6 = 1/X Let's remove the denominators by multiplying by 12X 12X*(1/3) - 12X*(5/6) = 12X*(1/X) Clear the fractions. 4X - 10X = 12 -6X=12 multipy by -1 6X=-12 Divide both sides by 6 6X/6 = -12/6 X = -2
