Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you meant equations only dealing with x on the lefthand side, then these are other, simple possibilities: \[(x+1)^2 = x^2 + 2x + 1\] \[(x+1)(x1) = x^2 1\] \[(x1)^2 = x^2 2x + 1\] He'll likely use one that's of this form, but with additional numbers in front of the first x term, for instance.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would choose any equation that looked like it was already factored, and then expand it out. Basically something of them form \[(x+a)(x+b)\]where \(a\) and \(b\) are constant (integers). An example would be to take \(a=3,\; b=2\). So\[(x3)(x+2)\]\[x^23x+2x6\]\[x^2x6\] So my question would ask to factor \(x^2x6\)
