Can you help me, not sure where this one wants me to go, can you help me step by step? Andrew factored the expression -4x^3 +2x^2 +8x as -2x(4x^2-2x-8). But when Melissa applied the distributive law and multiplied out -2x(4x^2-2x-8), she got -8x^3+4x^2 +16x; thus, Andrew's solution does not appear to check. Why is that? Please help Andrew to understand this better. Explain your reasoning and correctly factor the original expression, if possible. If the expression is prime, so state. Walk me through it, thank you!
