if you look at the exponents on each term, you notice the first two are even and the last two are odd. you will need to incorporate a grouping strategy.
first factor out the great common factor of each of the first two terms of coefficients and then factor out the lowest factor of x of the first two terms also, you should be left with a linear (or nearly linear factor)
\[6x^{6} + 8x^{4}\]
what is the greatest common factor of 6 and 8?
what is the lowest factor of those exponents?
what are you left over with?

- anonymous

you do the same with \[-15x^{3} - 20x\]

oops i meant least common factor* sorry!

- anonymous

ok so what is the least common multiple*** of 6 and 8?

- anonymous

tht would be 24

- anonymous

dude let her figure it out

- anonymous

oh sorry
my bad

- anonymous

robot and toast

- anonymous

ok shirl...ignore what i said up there about the greatest common factor or whatever...
what is the least common multiple of 6 and 8?

- anonymous

what is going on here

- anonymous

24

- anonymous

good job shirl

- anonymous

what is mathpath

- anonymous

ok no least common multiple...i.e.. a factor of 6 and 8

- anonymous

dude thats not even the correct answer so shes wrong

- anonymous

r u sure

- anonymous

ok the least common multiple of 6 and 8 is 2
why?
because you can factor out a 2 from 6 and 8

- anonymous

it is the name of my organization

- anonymous

how can 2 be a multiple of 6 and 8

- anonymous

i meant factor

- anonymous

oh ok i was wondering........

- anonymous

are you going to help me

- anonymous

ok so now look at the exponents of x
\[x^{6} and x^{4}\]
which one is lower?

- anonymous

i think she left dude

- anonymous

i'm trying to help you...
ok here's a question:
can you factor x^4 from x^6 ?
answer: yes because x^4(x^2) = x^6 so what you do with the first two terms is factor out the lowest exponent and greatest common factor*** from the ones with the even terms
you get : 2x^4 (3x^2 +4) -5x(3x^2 + 4)
now if you look at this what do you see in common between the odd and even exponents that were not there before? the factor (3x^2 + 4)
now because you are using the grouping idea you can also group the 2x^4 and the -5x. then you can factor (2x^4 - 5x) to x(2x-5)
the final answer is x(3x^2 +4)(2x-5)

u explained well robots! ;)

- anonymous

thanks...if that doesn't make sense then i can try to explain it again

- anonymous

well it made sense to me atleast!
