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

\[3x^2+9x+x+3\] I just found two factors of 3(3) that added up to be 10 Factor this by grouping

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
What factors does 3x^2 and 9x have in common?

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

myininayaBest 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?

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

I was just asking you what 3x^2 and 9x had in common so that we can factor this beast
 2 years ago

mscrosscountryBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
both have 3x in common?
 2 years ago

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

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

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

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

mscrosscountryBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so the answer is (3x + 1)
 2 years ago

myininayaBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
x+3 and 3x+1 are both factors of the polynomial given

SdowneyBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
x+3 & 3x+1 are the factors
