    a^2-3ab+2b^2 the factors of 2 whose sum is -3 are -1 nd -2. split the middle term -3ab using this. then u will get a^2-2ab-ab+2b^2 =a(a-2b)-b(a-2b) =(a-2b)(a-b) Is it clear?

    so the factor of the a^2-4ab+3b^2 is -3 -1 also a^2-3ab-ab+3b^2 =a(a-3b)-b(a-3b) =(a-3b)(a-b)?

    good:) so a^2-3ab+2b^2=(a-2b)(a-b) a^2-4ab+3b^2=(a-3b)(a-b) a^2-5ab+6a^2 = (a-2)(a-3)

    may i ask if this is correct a^2-5ab+6a^2 = (a-2)(a-3) because i didnt split it yet

    nope:( sorry i didnt notice it. if it is a^2-5ab+6b^2, then a^2-5ab+6b^2= (a-2b)(a-3b)

    so is it all right if a^2-3ab+2b^2=(a-1b)(a-2b) a^2-4ab+3b^2=(a-1b)(a-3b) ?

    First I factorised the denominators. then i found lcm.

    Medals 1

    after finding the lcm i multiplied each fraction both up and down to make them have the common denominator. the common denominator is (m+3)^2(m+2) but the denominator of the first fraction is (m+3)(m+2). To make it (m+3)^2(m+2) i multiplied by (m+3). if i multiplied the denominator then i should multiply the numerator by the same in order to keep the fraction the same. getiing it?
