Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There'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.

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.21 * 1 = 1 so that is not it.

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

Directrix

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

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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.23x times 4x = 12 x^2 >doesn't work

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

Directrix

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0xDD i think lol and another one :O

Directrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Here 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 ?>

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24 times  3 is not 20.

Directrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.24 times 5 is close but 4 times 5 does not equal 20

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

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

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

chubbytots

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

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

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

Directrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.26x^2 + 15x  4x  10 = 3x(2x + 5)  2(2x + 5) = (2x + 5) * ( 3x  2). Right.
