Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for the first one I factored out an x and see what's left for second one I noticed that first two terms(5x^5 & 10x^2) have common factor of 5x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so i need to find a common factor first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes; always check to see if there is a common you can pull out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15 doesnt really go into 8 that well; so look at the 'x's and see how many you can pull out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the lowest x is just x so is that the lowest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.15x^5+10x^28x = x(5x^4 +10x 8) thats correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am really confused. so that is completely factored

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since this is not in a usual form that we can see; we do a trial and error method to search for other factors

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to make this faster; we can graph this on wolframalpha.com and see where the "roots" end up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't see anything that is a common factor of 5,10, and 8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it looks to me like the answer you gave is as far as it can be factored
