    so the easiest way to do this is to multiply out the factors you have there you know that it needs to multiply out to a positive 25

    because if you multiply 5*-5 you get -25 not +25

    this factor is prime, im not sure if you were looking up or waiting for a responce but this one can not be factored

    to justify this you can take the only one that will work, or rather come close, would be (x + 5)(x + 5) or (x − 5)(x − 5) and both of these would give you a middle term either -10x or +10x

    for this, i know its going to be annoying for now, it will be a lot easier the more you do this, but multiply out the terms to find out what it comes out to

    (x + 5)(x + 5) = x^2+10x+25 (x + 5)(x − 5) = x^2-25 (x − 5)(x − 5) = x^2-10x+25

    then you can see, oh none of these match the answer, therefore it's prime.

    oh okay thanks ! Factor Completely: 36x^2 − 25 (6x − 5)(x + 5) (6x + 5)(6x + 5) (6x − 5)(6x − 5) <--- answer (6x + 5)(6x − 5) Factor Completely: 3x^2 − 21 3(x^2 − 7) <---- answer 3(x + 7)(x − 7) 3(x + 7)(x − 3) Prime

    welllllll. on the first one, the easy thing to look at tis you need to have a -25 so what multiplies to give you a -25

    keep in mind that 6*-6 gives you -36

    but the easiest way to look at this is x2 − 36, there is no middle term, this means there has to be one factor is that x + something and x - something to make the middle term go away
