Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what are the two numbers that you want to find the greatest common factor of?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But why do you need GCF to solve this? It is quite simple. Just subtract 520 and carry over the x^2. That would be 15x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that one can be solved by factorising the polynomial.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[ 2x^2  21x =54 \] \[2x^2  21x  54 = 0 \] Now you want to solve: \[(2x + a)(x +b) = 2x^2  21x  54 \] Note that you must have \[ a*b = 54 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this won't always work so easily. But I can see here that it does.
