Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you get 3m(m+2n)+7(m+2n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then you can simplify it as (3m+7)(m+2n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yeah....im not so sure about the first one...i dont think you can do it by group factoring because it can't be factored unless done by completing the square or using the quadratic formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wait...you did learn about breaking it up into 3 and 1 or 2 and 2 right?
