Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A=a^2 B=6ax C=40x^2 what are two factors of A*C that add up to be B A*C=40a^2x^2=(10ax)(4ax) B=10ax4ax so a^2+10ax4ax40x^2 now factor by grouping

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(a^2+10ax)+(4ax40x^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do the terms in the first group have in common? what do the terms in the second group have in common?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there isn't an a in common in the first group? there isn't a 4x in common in the second group?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0theres not 2 4x's so there isnt any 4x in common and theres a^2 and a but those are different they arent the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both terms in the first group DO have the factor a in common both terms in the second group DO have the factor 4x in common so we have a(a+10x)4x(a+10x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we haven't factored it yet factor means numbers being multiplied those two terms are being subtracted (or you could say added) so what does the first term have in common with the second term now?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you mean 10x+a or a+10x right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so factored that out and tell me what you get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no try again think can you factor this: 3ax+9x they both have in 3x in common so we can factor 3x out 3x(a+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dotn know how to do any of these i dont know what any of this means i have a 26% in my algebra class and i have about 17 more problems to do and none of this is making sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok are problem above we are trying to factor a(a+10x)4x(a+10x) both terms have a+10x in common so factor it out (a+10x)(a4x) a was lefted from the first term 4x was lefted from the second term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it sounds like you need an inperson tutor this is as well as i can explain it online and probably in person maybe you should review some easier forms of factoring first

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol i actually try to explain it to you and others are just giving you answers and you give them medals lol
