Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So at first you need to expand the left side and move everything there to have one side = 0 in order to factor. That being so, i got 16x^2 32x  8x +25 = 0 then collect all like terms 16x^2 40x +25 = 0 I notice both the first and last numbers are squares and see that this is going to be a squared equation. So I factor from here to get (4x5)^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmm? In the factor? Yes. See (4x5)^2 = (4x5)(4x5) Expanded u get 16x^2 40x +25
