would you set 16t^2-9 equal to 0 to factor as a trinomial?

You will get (4t-3)(4t+3)

do you mind drawing that out for me because I don't really understand how to get it?

You sure the question says "equal to 0 to factor"
anonymous
  • anonymous
it says factor

You did factor right, perhaps they meant to solve for t by factoring and setting equal to zero?
anonymous

It just says factor?

Factor the expression

Ok then I did do it right.
mysesshou
  • mysesshou
ok, then you don't need to set to zero to factor it, i suppose.
mysesshou
  • mysesshou
does the question have the zero and the trinomial part?
anonymous
  • anonymous
just the trinomial
mysesshou
  • mysesshou
ok, then needhelpinmath first answer is right. you would only set it to zero if you were trying to solve for the t. This means (4t-3)=0 and (4t+3)=0 and solve for t. But if the question is really only asking for factor, then needhelpinmath's first answer is enough. :)

\[16t^2-9\] Ones of this type follow the format \[(at-b)(at+b)=a^2t-b^2\] Here, the 16 gives \[16=a^2\] so the a=4. Then, the 9 gives \[9=b^2 \] so b=3. hope this helps some :)

that was probably the process that needhelpinmath used to get to his/her factored solution.
