Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not correct. When you take out the common factor k, what is left for each term?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You cannot multiply the terms... One example: factor x^2 + 2x In this case, x is the common factor. Take it out and group the rest of the terms, that is x^2 + 2x = x (x) + 2(x) = x ( x+2) Can you try again for your question?
