dont you use a factor diamond then you use the FOIL method?

I have the possible answers: A.(3a-8b)(a-6b) B.(3a-16b)(a-3b) C.3(a-4b)(a-4b) D.3(a-8b)(a-8b)
anonymous
  • anonymous
i think its c :)
anonymous
  • anonymous
u pull out the 3, then u r left with (a^2 -8ab+16b^2), when u simplify that even more, u get (a-4b)(a-4b) , 4+4=8, 4*4=16. I hope it helps :)
