Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first simplify the top part: 18x^2+27x24x40 > this can be rewritten as: 18x^2+3x40 now, with the simplified part you have to factor it. To do so, we have find two number that multiplied is equal to 40 and another two that multiplied is 18. to confirm those 4 number check if the subtracted (subtract in this case because the last number is negative "40") is 3. our options are: 3x6, 2x9 and 18x1 40x1, 20x2, 10x4 and 5x8 with this options, which of them have a subtraction equals to 3? ex.: (3x+10)(6x4) = 18x^2  12x +60x  40 (wrong) try another option, and keep trying until one of them workds
