Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got 5t^2(3t+10) and that was incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no that would multiply to 15t^3+50t^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so two numbers that multiply to 50 and add to 15 are 5 and 10. So we can factor the trinomial: (x+5)(x+10)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0t^2+15t+50 You must find a pair of factors of 50 that sum to 15 5 and 10 Now replace the 15t with 5t + 10t t^2+5t + 10t +50 now pair off and factorise... (t^2+5t) + (10t +50) giving ... t(t + 5) + 10(t + 5) answer = (t + 5)(t + 10)
