Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thats not one of my options though. (3x + 1) (3x + 3) (3x – 1) None of the above

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[3x^2+9x+x+3\] I just found two factors of 3(3) that added up to be 10 Factor this by grouping

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the factors they have in common is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[3x(x+3)+1(x+3)\] Now we have two terms. What do these two terms have in common?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is none of the above because its not one of my options

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I was just asking you what 3x^2 and 9x had in common so that we can factor this beast

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both have 3x in common?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right so from the first two terms i factored out 3x giving me \[3x(x+3)+x+3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1But we can write this as \[3x(x+3)+1(x+3)\] since 1(x+3) is still x+3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now what factors does 3x(x+3) and 1(x+3) have in common besides the factor 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no they both have the factor (x+3) in common

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is (3x + 1)
