    x^(12) + 12x^(11) +10x+120 = (x^(11) + 10)(x + 12)

    you are using 12 because 12 * 10 = 120

    also think about it 12*x^(11) = 12x^(11) and 10 * x = 10x

    yea. what i did was took the common factors and used them. I think my problem is trying to find the "short" ways to figure out problems. most of the time i get them correct lol
