Factor the Polynomial: 12x^2x6
I got (4x+3)(3x2) but my graded homework which indicates the answer is right shows (4x3)(3x+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is if you you use (4x+3)(3x2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you end up with 12x^2+x6 not 12x^2x6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so it has to be (4x3)(3x+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(a+b)(ac) and (ab)(a+c) do not distribute out to the same polynomials.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am not seeing where the signs change I will list my steps maybe you can point out where i am wrong (12x^28x)+(9x6)> 4x(3x2)+3(3x2)>(4x+3)(3x2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when i redistribute it is wrong I see that, but even my homework shows the same process up until the final answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok the problem is you are reversing the sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it factors into (4x3)(3x+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(4x+3)(3x2) would be the factors of 12x^2 + x 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the difference is the x would be postive with these factors

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I played around with the equation I get: (12x^2+9x)+(8x6)>3x(4x+3)+2(4x3) which I am sure is wrong, somewhere I am screwing up with the signs.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got that from the factors for X (8,9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.012x^2x6 (12x^28x)+(9x6) < here is where you screwed up 12x^2+8x9x6 4x(3x+2)3(3x+2) (4x3)(3x+2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Reason being, is because it was originally "x", so you can't have a + term in the middle while you are grouping the terms together. It has to be , keeping it equal.
