## JA1 2 years ago Okay guys refresh my memory quick and easy how do you do something like this: 2m2 + 13m + 15

1. JA1

\[2m² + 13m + 15\]

2. JA1

Come on guys this is an easy medal but I only want answers that come from you, no internet searching and I want the method not the answer.

I am not sure,JA,sorry.

4. JA1

aw' rats :)

LOL. I am not really sure what you're asking,either.

6. JA1

xD i just need to know how to factor trinomials, i learned it but it was a while back.

7. JA1

@abb0t

Oh,trinomials. They haven't taught me those yet.

9. JA1

good thing is these questions are boosting my engagement score :D im hoping abb0t gets here, he's like a genius xD

10. JA1

ooh i know, @Ashleyisakitty

11. Ashleyisakitty

Simplifying 2m2 + 13m + 15 Reorder the terms: 15 + 13m + 2m2 Factor a trinomial. (5 + m)(3 + 2m) Final result: (5 + m)(3 + 2m)

12. JA1

ah ok i see, thats actualy a much faster way to do tings, btw this is not prime right?

13. Ashleyisakitty

i dont think so... perhaps if it was (6+m)(3+2m) it would have been but i dont think its a prime

14. JA1

ah ok thank you :)
