Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you need to look for common factors the first 2 terms = x^2(x  y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and xy^2 + y^3 = y^2(x  y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2bring these together we get x^2(x  y)  y^2(x  y) do you follow this so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you get (x+y)(xy)(xy)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok so notive that (xy) is common so we have (x  y) ( x^2  y^2) now the second parentheses can be factored further (its difference of 2 squares) finally its (x  y)(x  y)(x + y) or (x  y)^2 (x + y)
