factor: 3m^3xy^2+m^2y and plz show me how to get the answer
clarify the problem. is 3m being raised to the power of "3xy^2+m^2y" or "3xy^2" and then "m^2y" is added?
First let us write the question down in a more clear way: \[3m^3xy^2 + m^2y\] now take out the common factors which are in this case: \[m^2y(3mxy + 1)\] That's the way to solve such a problem . ^_^
