Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1correct! so, split up 3x as 7x+4x x^2 7x+4x28 now factor out x from first 2 terms and 4 from last two, can you ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, to factor out x from x^27x, we get x (x7) and 4 from 4x28. we get +4(x7) so, x(x7)+4(x7) factor out (x7) from this!
