    I aced Algebra I though I know that much. In my day we didn't have all this fancy schmancy stuff(I'm only 14). I don't know nuttn bout dis der Aljero!

    Can you please solve the quadratic equation first? I mean to find that value of a when the equation is 0

    ya im pretty sure it's \[a^2-5a-2a+10\] After it's been factored it's \[(a-5)(a-2)(a-5)(a-2)\]

    No repeated factors in this case.

    so just \[(a−5)(a−2)\] ?

    There are four factors :)

    |dw:1358566081932:dw| So, the graph is like this (sorry for my poor drawing..) In what region does the function have a value less than 0?

    i think i got it from here. one more thing does \[(a^2-5a-2a+10)^2\] become \[(a^2-7a+10)(a^2-7a+10)\]?

    Are you still working on the factorization part?

    \[a^4 - 29a^2 +100\]\[=a^4 - 25a^2 - 4a^2 +100\]\[=a^2 (a^2-25) -4(a^2 - 25)\]\[=(a^2-4)(a^2-25)\]\[=(a-2)(a+2)(a^2-25)\]\[=(a-2)(a+2)(a-5)(a+5)\] The last two steps are just using the identity of difference of two squares. \(a^2-b^2 = (a+b)(a-b)\)

    I don't know how you get this: \[(a^2-5a-2a+10)^2\]
