Read that.

you can divide it in 2 parts as follows: (2x^3+6x^2) + (2x+6) then simplify

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
you get 2x^2(x+3)+2(x+3)
 one year ago

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that is equal to (2x^2+2)(x+3)

What happens to the GCF?

santiagosoto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok, so @SnuggieLad, would this be it, 2[(x + 3)(x2 + 1)]
 one year ago

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
no, the GCF could be 2x^2(x+3)+2(x+3)

Ive you got this one.

@ivettef365, how? Not all of the constants or coefficients have the x^2
 one year ago

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
that is why it needs to be divided in two parts, otherwise the GCF for the whole problem would be 2

Which is what I thought.

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
and then you have 2(x^3+3x^2+x+3)
 one year ago

ivettef365 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
but the question asks to factor completely
 one year ago

santiagosoto Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Yea, so when you factor everything don't you get 2[(x + 3)(x2 + 1)] so when you distribute you get the original problem.
