What are the instructions for the posted problem?

its factoring diamond

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
There's an x missing here, I think > 6x^2+54= > after the "5." I don't know the diamond technique. I can factor by grouping.

yeah factor by grouping :)

6x^2 +5x 4 What are two numbers that multiply to 24 AND add to 5 ?

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ithink anyways i have the other side of it.. its (2x1)( )

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay. What number times 1 will multiply to 4. 1*? =  4 ? Help me out a little bit, and I can help you finish this. Okay?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
1 * 1 = 1 so that is not it.

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
no wait wat?? i need to find a number that can multiply by 4?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Yes, so 1 times 4 = 4 which means 6x^2 +5x 4 = (2x1)( ? +4 ) We're almost there. (2x) times what equals 6 x^2 ?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Let's see if it works: 6x^2 +5x 4 = (2x1)( 3x +4 ) ?? @chubbytots What do you think?

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
yep its right actually im answering a puzzle e. e

>>so its 3x4? I did not get that.

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
for da first group and the second group is?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(2x1)*(3x4) multiplies to 6x^2 11x + 4 which is not the given problem.
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Okay, let's try that.

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
6x^2 11x + 4=(2x1)(3x+4)
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(2x1)*(3x+4) = 6x^2 3x + 8x 4 = 6x^2 + 5x  4.

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
thats da second question and da second question is \[3x^211x20=(3x+4)( ? )\]
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
I only saw the first problem.

i need the third problem cuz this is a pzzle v. v

3x^2 11x  20 = (3x+4) * ( ) What times 3x is equal to 3 x^2 ?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
3x^2 11x  20 = (3x+4) * (x )
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
3x times 4x = 12 x^2 >doesn't work
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Oh, you mean ( x + 3) as the second factor?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(3x+4) * (x + 3 ) = 3x^2 11x  20 ?? 3x^2 + 9x + 4x + 12 Nope.

We could guess forever.

xDD i think lol and another one :O
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Here is where we are: 3x^2 11x  20 = (3x+4) * (x ) We have to get 20 for the last term. 4 times what equals  20 ?>
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
4 times  3 is not 20.
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
4 times 5 is close but 4 times 5 does not equal 20
 one year ago

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i think we need to make one of them a negative right?

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
It's your turn to do this one. :) You come up with the factors, and I will check.
 one year ago

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
i'll be guessing dou
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
That's what I ended up doing because you didn't like factoring by grouping.
 one year ago

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
lol actually this s factoring by grouping.. and i need to do factor diamond
 one year ago

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
its like two steps first is factoring by grouping and factoring diamond
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
That diamond thing is sophisticated guessing for me.

chubbytotsBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
x. x so can we do factoring by grouping?
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(2x+1)*(2x+5) = 4x^2 + 12x + 5 > This is from your guess.

6x10=60 ryt and wet going to make one of them a negative?

x^2 + 11x  10 = x^2 + 15x  4x  10

This thread is so long that I have lost the problem.

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
(2x + 5) * ( 3x + 2) That is my last factoring problem on this puzzle.
 one year ago

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
6x^2 + 15x  4x  10 = 3x(2x + 5)  2(2x + 5) = (2x + 5) * ( 3x  2). Right.
