## Wesley 5 years ago Factor each polynominal 44a^2+11a Can anyone show me how to work this?

Well, the first thing in these cases is always to see that a * a = a^2, so you have: \begin{align} 44a^2 &+ 11a\\ 44a\cdot a &+ 11a \end{align} In that case, you can factor an $$a$$ out: $a(44a + 11)$ Does that make sense?

Yes

You can also factor out an 11: $11a(4a+1)$
