Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cow? the answer is (3w+4)(3w2) but I don't get your reduction? (3w+4)(3w2) does not equal (9w+12)(9w6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Another way after you have found 12 and 6 is to use factor by grouping (9w^2 +12w) +(6w8) 3w(3w+4) 2(3w+4) (3w+4)(3w2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09*(3w+4)(3w2) = (9w+12)(9w6) Im just dividing out the 9 i multiplied at the first step (9*8) just a diff method for people who dont like factor by grouping
